Understand Your Hate
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.—1 John 2:9
The things we say matter. If we say we are a follower of Christ but don't act like it, we will harm the vision, mission, and values of the message. So when we proclaim we have the light of understanding, and then consciously choose to hate a fellow member of the body of Christ, then our minds are darkened still. Today don't live in this duality! Speak and act with consistency, so that the message of Christ will have its full effect in the mind of others
DO THIS: Match your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors with your proclamation.
PRAY THIS: God, deep in my heart, there is hate. Hate toward others. While I rarely act on it, I pray that the darkness of my life will be exposed and that I will trust you for the love and understanding I need.
