“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 13 Corinthians 4-7 NLT
Why do you HATE me? #LoveMoreStopHate
WHY do you HATE me? I wish you loved me with the same intensity and passion you hate me.
You don’t know me so WHY do you HATE me? If you would just look beyond our differences, you would see that I’m just like you in many ways. Yes, just like you! I have a heart and emotions, just like you. I laugh and cry, sleep and wake just like you. And like you, I have my good days and bad days, happy days and sad days, I laugh and cry, I have dreams and nightmares. I could go on and on.
So tell me, WHY do you HATE me? Answer me!!!
But… is it really about me or is it about you? Your fears and insecurities. Is that why you tear me down to elevate you, you drag me so you can advance, you step on me to feel empowered? Answer me!!! Better yet, answer yourself. #LoveMoreStopHate
When hate takes over… it gets real ugly
When you allow hate to take over your heart and mind, without a doubt, it will show its ugliness in the way you think, talk, act and treat others. It’s a poison that spreads and manifest itself in everything you do. It will control you!
Hate is irrational, disrespectful, malicious, insensitive, has no conscience, no empathy, no compassion, no sympathy, no tolerance, and no patience. So, why would you choose to hate and feel proud of it? Can you rationally explain this to yourself? #LoveMoreStopHate
I’m sick and tired of all the hate around me. Hateful words, acts, crimes…. it is rampant! I know you love your family, your inner circle, people who look, think, live like you… BUT you hate everybody else? Really! Come on now! That’s not of God! That is definitely not what Jesus is all about.
The same heart that loves, also hates with a passion. That tells me right there that love is a choice more than a feeling. Well guess what, the same goes for hate. You can choose to hate or not hate. Free will!!! So, why not choose to not hate? That should be a no brainer. You think! But sadly it is not for some people. They just don’t get it and sadly, may never. Again, this is a choice. Free will!!! #LoveMoreStopHate
Think about it… this world would be so boring if we were all the same. Hello! So, instead of hating our differences, let’s love, embrace and celebrate our differences. The same energy you put into hating, redirect that energy into loving.
When we love more, we love beyond our family and our inner circle… people who look like us. We are more mindful and more sensitive of others’ feelings. When there is more love, we have more empathy, compassion, sympathy, patience, tolerance… more of everything that is good. We treat one another with kindness, respect and dignity, and care about each other’s wellbeing. #LoveMoreStopHate
Love unites – Hate divides
If you are a hater, let me holla at you for a minute. Please do yourself a favor, stop hate and love more. You can do this! You got it in you. If you can love one, you can surely love others. Yes you can! You can change but here is the thing, you have to want to change. But here’s the good news, you don’t have to do this by yourself. God can and will help you!!! Jesus is the Master Changer of hearts and minds. Allow Him to help you switch from hating to loving. You will be amazed of how good it feels to love instead of hating. #LoveMoreStopHate
What does the Bible say about love and hate?
“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” 1 John 4:20 NIV
“If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead. Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.” 1 John 3:14-15 NLT
God’s message… LOVE One Another
“This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another.” 1 John 3:11 NLT
“Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other, let us show the truth by our actions.” 1 John 3:18 NLT
“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8 NLT
“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love – not that we love God, but that he loves us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1 John 4:9-10 NLT
“Dear friends, since God love us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.” 1 John 4:11-12 NLT
Love unites – Hate divides
I choose love over hate! What about you?
