No human harmed,
No one hated,
Kindness for all.
Have a hate-free heart. It’s one of life’s greatest blessings!
Hate should never be defined as disagreement. We can disagree with kindness, compassion, and love.
Hate has a lousy track record. It overrides reason, casts out compassion, causes violence, kills kindness, and ruins relationships.
The history of hate is mostly hidden. That’s because it hurts national pride to face it.
Weak people often feel a need to hate, so that they can blame someone for their emotional pain. A fearless person doesn’t hate. Hate is a sign of fear. People who aren’t courageous enough to forgive stay stuck in hate.
Hate is cowardice. It allows fear to cast out compassion and create a negative attitude toward certain people. Every time you open the gate to hate, your heart shuts down.
Jesus gives us another option for dealing with our foes. We can love our enemies. We don’t have to hate them.
To mistreat people, either verbally or physically, is to vandalize the image of God. For a practical guide to overcoming hate, search for my book: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind. Thank you.
Hate wants to harm.
Compassion wants to heal.
Hate is a great weight,
A hefty load,
Hardening every heart
That carries it.
What a world it would be, If we were all cruelty-free!
