God Like Love

It is human nature to be drawn to people like yourself. But very little is required to love people who first express love for you. Drawing from the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10) and the first characteristic of the Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5), we will find that loving God with all your heart will require us to love people who may not respond in kind ways. The parable Jesus tells in Luke 10, reveals the erroneous interpretation many religious leaders had of Lev. 19:18, “love your neighbor as yourself,” but hate your enemies (they thought). It is entirely possible to overemphasize theology to the exclusion of loving people.
