Only the humble can love well.
Even love their enemies. The proud are conditional lovers, and never love their enemies, only the like-minded, and even the like-minded are loved conditionally, when they perform up to expectations. The proud are competitors, rejectors, critics, judges, while the humble are enjoyers of others, just as they are. What’s missing in the USA today, including the Church, is humility. Impossible to generate humility, educate humility. Impossible to humble myself. Humility is a work of God, and the human gets zero credit. Beware of those who claim to follow God, are gifted at appearing humble, but are not humble, unconditionally loving. Frauds in need of overhaul by God.
