Some of us have hatred in our hearts, but we don’t identify it as ‘hate’ because we feel justified in our emotions.
But this judgement is faulty because it’s ‘human judgement’ and many times human judgement lack grace and mercy. We must see others through the eyes of God. I know it’s easier said than done- but it’s attainable.
How else are you able to genuinely pray for an enemy? How else can you forgive the molester? How else can you turn the other cheek when slapped with …betrayal? Easy. You consciously and intentionally make the decision to LOVE THOSE WHO GOD LOVES. Hate only breeds sickness in our bodies (e.g., in some cases- your own heart will attack you aka heart attack and heart disease). Forgive. Let go. And love.
