No one likes a fake smile because of the insincerity associated with it. Nor does anyone like false love from a person. Love is such a profound form of affection that it should not be artificial. If you do not have genuine concern for someone then pray for God to soften your heart towards them.
Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.
~ Romans 12:9 [NLT]
