Do not love simply because you have been commanded, commit to love in spite of. Love in spite of the shorts worn to church; love in spite of the screeching hearing aid; love in spite of the running children. Jesus says, “As I have loved you, Love one another.”
How committed a person am I concerning the ideals I hold dear? How much do I really stand up for the truths I have learned? Am I really convinced about my “religious convictions”? What are my commitments in life anyway?
