From obsessive hatred to a healing love

Through God’s love we can keep hatred from taking root in our thinking.

Sometimes in our lives, we encounter the wrong that people do, and we react strongly against it. We can even find ourselves hating someone for their actions. 

Is hating a person ever a right response? No. Christ Jesus’ admonition to “love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44) leaves no room for doubt as to how hate must be addressed. The spiritual authority behind these words is the Christ, the message of God’s infinite love for all of us, which meets the human need. And with it, Jesus healed all kinds of moral and physical suffering.
