Lessons in love

I was blind sided yesterday when reading The Shack. This is plenty simple to most people, I'm sure, but the writer stated that "Trust is the fruit of a relationship in which you know you are loved."
WOW! I was blown away! This explains a lot about the level of trust with several of my current relationships.
I have struggled with the scripture about how easy it is to love those who love you. But the real challenge is in loving those who do not love you. Serving those who curse you, those who are (seemingly) forever ungrateful.
I can continue to love unconditionally, even while working on trusting again. I can love the unlovable.
