Love vs. Hate

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

King also said, “Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” What a terrible burden it is to carry hate in your heart. It affects your relationships with almost everyone else, friend or rival, and it occupies your mind so much that you can’t think clearly or positively about others. You will find great relief when you forgive and act toward the hated one with love and care.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good (Romans 12:9).
