Unlikable People

Question: What do you do when you don’t like someone but you have to love them in Christ anyway? I feel really bad because there is someone who drives me crazy and everytime they talk I just want to choke them to death. I am not sure why they evoke such a strong reaction in me. I am trying to pray for them since I don’t like them.

Response: Love is godly because you do it to the unlovely, otherwise it would just be liking them. That person was created in God’s image. Look hard, surely you can see some of that image still stamped on them. Christ died to redeem them, surely you can see His forgiveness all over them. The Holy Spirit should be in them, look at the fruits of the spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23, surely some of that is surfacing in them.
