When Christians love only people who love them, they don't prove to anyone anything about who God is. They only prove their hypocrisy.
Note: It doesn't make sense to accept the love of God, who doesn't owe us anything and who we turn away from daily, and then refuse to love others when they hurt or reject us. Christian love is a sign to the world that God is greater than our needs and feelings and a sign of His great power in our lives.
