Graham Cooke: ​It is not easy to love everyone, but it is the call on every prophet’s life. 

Standard

It is not easy to love everyone, but it is the call on every prophet’s life. To test us in this, God deliberately puts people around us who are meant to be loved by us. Oftentimes, we will have to be very creative to love them; some of them, by design, are not easy to love. But those unlovable ones, ironically, teach us the most about God’s heart. I call people like these grace growers. They cultivate the grace in my life by forcing me to be intentional about loving them. Grace growers provide us with a shortcut to enter the Presence of God at a deeper level of response.
