The only hatred that can ever hurt us is the hatred that we harbor in our hearts toward another. Love and fear or hatred can never co-exist. Matthew 5:44, 46 reads “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?” The Bible also tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven is within, but that would be impossible if there is hatred there. Today, I will be alert to my thoughts and correct any and all ungodlike thoughts I may have toward another. I choose joy!
