1 .. List the people you have difficulty loving.

2 .. What about these people do you struggle with?
How do they affect you? Does your behavior change because of them?

3 .. What is their perception of you?
Is there any truth to it?

4 .. What particular fruits of the Holy Spirit do you need to develop to be with them and to love them effectively?
{ Fruits of the spirit are from Galatians 5:22-23:
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control }

5 .. What is God teaching you and changing in you?

6 .. If possible, how can you move toward these people?

Then rinse and repeat for everyone on your list. The small amount of time is worth the long-game rewards.
