Contempt won't help your relationships
Some people deserve contempt. But expressing it (or even feeling it) won't help your relationship with them. If you give them love instead, even when they don't deserve it, it will be better for you both. It may be hard to love them, but it is worth it.
God, thanks for your mercy for us. Help us to have mercy for others like you have mercy for us. Thank you. Amen.
