Proverbs 10:12 (NIV)
Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Luke 21:8 (NIV)
8 And he said, “Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, `I am he!’ and, `The time is at hand!’ Do not go after them.
Hatred stirs up conflict. Take heed that you’re not led astray. Many have come in His name – even the ways of the world – false gods, lies.
He’s with us though. Even when hatred is the theme of the day, when tolerance is preached and hatred practiced, when vituperative language is the choice, not love, He’s with us.
It’s time to go back to the basics of love (with Willie, Waylon and the boys – oops, sorry). He is with us. It’s time to rise and fight the evil with love and action, with love in action.
Hatred stirs up conflict, love eliminates it.
