Do we hate because others are wrong and we are right? Do we hate because we are so smart and others are so dumb? Do we hate because someone wronged us, cheated us, abused us, took advantage of us or hurt us? Or is the truth that we hate because we are selfish and self-centered and value our own feelings and emotions more than anyone else. We will hate less and love more when we look at ways to encourage others instead of tearing them down.
Lord, help me to love and encourage more.
