In the kingdom of GOD it is black and white.. there is no gray.. You either LOVE or hate.. YOU cannot LOVE someone and still not like them .  Gods will is for us to LOVE everyone.  Sometimes this is not easy.. Betrayal, hurtful behavior, lack of loyalty.  We must be humbled and open up our hearts and our homes.. Yet when we do so time and time again taken advantage of.  THIS hardens our hearts.. Matthew 26:14-16 Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.
Betrayal.. Comes in many forms but hurts the most when its someone you love and trust..  Betrayal:   to be unfaithful in guarding, maintaining, or fulfilling

2 Corinthians 2:10-11
If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

I have forgiven TIME and time again and been told I have not? .. How does one know someone else's heart I ask?  Truly they do not. OTHER than GOD... I  do not know if it was SATAN or GOD intervening and this is why the past few months have been so hard.. . I thank the LORD for my strength and his undying love.  My TRUE friends who have stood my me, holding me up with encouragement in my beautiful life.. FOR the "friends" I thought loved me I forgive you, you have chosen a path and I have forgiven and released you from mine.  Hate the sin LOVE the sinner...
Romans 12:9-14 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

I have found a new way to "give" and not be on the front line for the ill intended..   "friends" who betrayed are the hardest that showed me dishonor and lack of care, I have forgiven... .  Love.. Yes I still love that other person.. even though there has been no emotion other than distain and shut out, condemned for standing up for myself and what is pure and right .. It really has been an interesting summer... I could have went in many directions..I'm very blessed to have a true circle of prayer warriors and friends.  And I thank you for your constant encouragement.
John 15:4-7 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

I ask in Jesus name to continue to help me give love to others even if they are undeserving.  To soften my heart and to release the pain others have inflicted.  In Jesus name AMEN

Incredible share. It is a beautiful thing you are doing and God will reward you. I find comfort in the verses you are sharing as I too have gone through a large betrayal this year and have been working through it.

There are a lot of shades of grey in our life! Not only black and white!
