“Good people hate those who are dishonest, and the wicked hate those who are honest.” – Proverb 29:27
The opposite of love is NOT hate.
The opposite of love is indifference.
You still care about those you hate.
It requires an equal amount of emotion and commitment to hate.
I know. I’ve tried.
The human body, however, was never intended to contain hate.
A ‘dixie’ cup was never intended to contain lava.
Hate fuels action, period. Do what must be done if it is in your power to do so, and, do so quickly.
Then pour it out. Get rid of it. Release it so you might be full again of love.
If a person or circumstance still ‘burns you up inside’ you’re not done.
Ask God to help you fix what might be fixed and forgive, pour out, and release what can’t.
You were made to be full of joy!
