Love your enemies.

AND love that one person who embodies every single one of your pet peeves and always seems to find the fastest way to most intensely annoy you.

Each person’s personality—our most and least favourite parts—is gift, and it’s all about how we receive the uniqueness of each person in his or her personality. Each trait speaks an aspect of God’s heart.

Accepting everyone as they are isn’t always easy… but it’s easier than being surprised and rattled every time they do that one thing over and over and over again. It’s more than that, though; when we accept people, they have the freedom to be themselves. After all, unity is not uniformity.

It’s scary to give people permission to be themselves. Maybe the Lord is asking you to expand your heart to fit them in it.
