Subject: Love or to like

When I was growing up I would hear my grandmother say "...God gives you the right to choose your friends but your loved ones are his department". This statement made me so very angry. Knowing niether of my parents tried to take respnonsibility of caring for us children. My love for my parents comes from my relationship with God and it is a decision he made from the begining of time so I have made my decision to obey. On the other hand I dont like my parents for their actions and decision of not being parents.
Love requires your whole being from the begining to the end. You can like a person today and next week feel totally the opposite.
