Gentle Love and Tough Love

Published April 10th, 2014 by Dirk Waren

When most people think of Christian love they automatically think of being as nice and pleasant as you can possibly be, 24/7. They also think of ultra-passivity. While it’s true that “love is kind” and we are called to “overcome evil with good,” sometimes the kindest thing you can do for a person isn’t very nice, and sometimes doing what’s good for a situation is totally shocking. This is “tough love.” Every believer is called to walk the balance beam between gentle love and tough love.
