“Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”
- Your claim to love God is justified by your true love for others! You are living a lie if your claim is not proven by your heart! Hate not only keeps you angry and vengeful, it keeps you out of the presence of God, causes you to live in unrest and it is ruining your witness! Swallow your pride, increase your love and be a light! Forgive others, be forgiven, and walk in peace! May we see others through your eyes Lord! Amen
- Is there hate in your life causing you to walk in darkness?
- Is the hate you are holding onto so strong that you are willing to live in darkness?
Matthew 5:23-24 “So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”
