Hatred vs. Love

Hatred - an emotion that often occurs in the lives of many. A sin, yet an easy example of our daily lives.

What is it exactly? A feeling of dislike and discontentment to a place or a thing; particularly a person.

Doesn't sound very good... does it? No. Not at all. 

We often will hate someone for something they've done to us, someone else or even themselves. Or maybe we hate them for another stupid reason. Perhaps they've made you jealous and that leads to hate? Is that right? Absolutely not!

No matter what people do to you or anyone else, for that matter.... don't hate them!! Rather, love them will all your heart... To be honest, you don't have to necessarily "like" someone to "love" them.... but, you can still treat them in a loving manner and not just that; pray for them. Every night. Kill them with kindness. Treat them as Christ treats you. You've sinned so many times. You've probably turned against him at one point in your life. You've probably been angry at him. Thought all that.... he doesn't hate you! He loves you and always will love you! He DIED for you. No matter your sins... he still loves you.... How awesome is that? He aids you. He cares for you. 

Treat others in such a way to reflect Christ. 

"This is my commandment: that you love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:12)

"And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love." (2 John 1:6)

We love because He first loved us!!!! (1 John 4:19)
