"Don't Pray for people to like you, pray that you will love them." -- Pastor Josh Terada

"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.  It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.  It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Jesus said in John 15, "The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you." No matter what we do, or how we nicely we share the gospel, there will be people who will hate us because of what we stand for and Who we love.  But, as followers of Jesus who were saved and loved by God while we were His enemies, we must be willing to follow in His footsteps in loving the unsaved.  We've been warned, the world will hate us for being His Kids, so stop hoping for people to like you, because we've been warned they often won't like us. But pray for a love that will never fail, even if it doesn't seem to "work". Because is that not the love of Jesus, a love that never gave up on us, no matter how much we fell down or pushed back.  

"Bless those who persecute you. Don't curse them; pray that God will bless them" - Romans 12:14
