Struggling With Hate During This Month of Love? — 4 Comments

  1. Your words are always so penetrating, Sheryl.
    We, Christians, do have a love/hate commandment.
    Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil…

  2. This is a great article. I was deeply moved by this scripture:
    Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you”?
    I’m thankful I have learned the importance of forgiving others. It’s such a struggle in the beginning because we always see their sins as worse than ours. But they are not worse than ours. When we finally come to see or glimpse the gravity of our sins then it becomes a lot easier to forgive others. Though I think this is a life long struggle. People continue to hurt us or our family and our flesh cries out No! This sin is too great! But hopefully we soon remember the sins we have been forgiven of and though we don’t like it our sins were huge. All sin is huge. We’ve hurt other peoples family members too. Though we usually think they deserved it. We are to speak the truth in love. If we weren’t speaking out of love then we sinned. And who, when angry, speaks the truth in love?
