I am having trouble discerning whom exactly we are to love and whom we are not to love. For example I know that we are to love God and our neighbor (Mark 12:31) (further explained in the parable of the Good Samaritan Luke 10:25-37) and love our enemies (5:44). However, I am still not sure regarding some circumstances. For example, if a person or group of people physically hurt a close member of your family or an innocent person in a serious way for no reason except that they are evil and wicked.
How are we supposed to feel about such people?
