Love is a commandment. The question is...can we do it unconditionally. The answer is yes. If we train ourselves, if we change our attitudes, we will change our mind. Like anything else, if you condition yourself, after a while it will become natural. But this takes time and patience, but most of all, it takes the Holy Spirit within each of us. We can't do it on our own, it is actually God doing it through us. With God's help, all things are possible.

Love cannot be a commandment because my family does not love me. I do not really know why except that they love money and power and I have always loved God more. They are even scary to me because they live so ruthlessly so if people live in an evil way, how can they love those of us who choose to love Jesus and God?
