Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. ... Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.Psalm 27:7,9-10 ( NIV )
When you refuse to love people because they're hard to love, you forget the fact that God always loves you, even though you're not always easy to love.
Christ must be at the center of your relationships because He provides a stable, fixed point of reference; otherwise, your relationships will be frail and fragile.
