Love among people is not first of all a feeling or an emotion or a sentiment but a decision of the will to be faithful to each other. . . . There are really no people whom we can love with unlimited feelings of love. We are all imperfect, broken, sinful people, but we are able to love one another because we are able to will to be faithful and constantly forgive each other’s unfaithfulness.
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. - Matthew 6:15 (NIV)
