For the follower of Jesus

The question isn’t, ‘should I love this person?’

The answer to that is always ‘yes’.

The paedophile and the princess. The terrorist and the teacher. The lunatic and the lollipop lady.  The people trafficker and the poet.  The racist and the rabbi. The one who’s harmed us and the one who has helped us. Our enemy and our inspiration. There is no person who we can encounter about whom Jesus’ primary directive to us is not,”love them”.

The question is, ‘how should I love this person?’
