Option Two- Week of June 1st

What are some qualities that make certain people easy to connect with and become your friends?

Which of these qualities are ones that you have?

Now, what are some of the characteristics that make some people tough to love?

Which of these (or maybe others) do you also have?

Thank God that He didn’t decide to only love people that were easily loveable! Romans 5: 8 tells us:

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were

still sinners. (NLT)

Where would you be if God hadn’t taken the initiative to love you in spite of your faults?

With God’s love for you as an example, think about some hard to love people in your life. How might God want you to view them? What could you do to show His love and kindness to them?

Spend some time right now praying for them and ask God how He wants you to relate to them.
