I love my husband because he’s...
...and because he’s in love with me.
But what if, God forbid, that ever changed?
What if, over time, he became selfish and hard and bitter...and he stopped loving me?
Would I stop loving him?
You see it happen all the time...when one either becomes or perceives their partner as unlovable. And what happens? All love stops. On both sides.
It’s easier to stop altogether than to continue loving the unlovable.
But may believers do the hard thing.
- May you love like Hosea, despite his wife being trashy.
- May you love like God, despite his children running as rebels.
- May you love like Jesus, despite your nails dug deep in his flesh.
Choose love. Not because of who others are—deserving or not, but because it’s who you are. His.
Always loved, designed to always love.

Have you seen someone love the unlovable?
