Wouldn't our society be a lot less dysfunctional if we took on this approach to loving people? If we would try to love people without a list of expectations and requirements, our relationships would probably be a lot healthier. We have a perfect example of this in the Bible. God loves us before we even have the capacity to love him back. We can come to him with all our imperfections and problems and he simply says, "I love you, too." Most people have at least heard of John 3:16, but it really does sum up this perfect love. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
As we enter this "month of love", I hope we'll all take a moment to say to someone (maybe even someone who has never said it to us), "I LOVE YOU, TOO!"
