Where there is hatred and resentment, there will always be pain, disagreement, and strife. That is not how we are to live as Christians.
We can never afford to accommodate hatred in our hearts. We are to be loving because that is what helps us forgive. Love corrects but it also gives understanding when people wrong us.
What is your definition of Love? The word/concept “Christian” that we mark on forms: Believer vs. Atheist; a very thin line. Beyond actions you shall be known.
We could go on…
But, we have shared a few things to reflect on.
And we pray:
Dear God, I ask that Your Love will guide me in times where I have been offended. May I never accommodate hatred in my heart, Lord. I pray that in every situation, I will be able to Love as you do, so that peace can truly reign and lives can be changed. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
