Luke 6:35

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

 

The tradition of Advent is one of waiting for the promise of the coming King, but this King is one who is kind to those who oppose Him. So as we approach the Christmas season, don’t be charitable only with those you are comfortable with; take a step of faith and show kindness to the ungrateful and wicked with no expectation of return. It seems from this passage that God is pleased when we show kindness to those who are hard to love.
