I feel like everywhere I turn there’s hate. We read it on the internet, social media (if you use it), we see it all over the news… Hate being spewed on every side…
This is wrong.
Have we so easily forgotten the lessons we’ve been taught?
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31 KJV
God created everything, from the sun, moon, & stars, to every living creature, and all of humanity. Not only did He create them, but after each creation, “… God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:25b KJV
Who are we to hate anything that God created?
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27 KJV
For the life of me, I cannot understand how one person can hate another. We are all made in the image of God. We are the only part of creation whom He formed and fashioned, in His image, with His hands. We are the only part of creation who He breathed life into. So, how can anyone hate another? Isn’t that equivalent to hating God who formed us?
I know we aren’t supposed to have hate in our hearts, but how often are we exposed to it, recipients of it, guilty…
I’m guilty of this. I’ve said, without a second thought, I hate the snow. How can I – who am I to hate anything that God created? Even the seasons, He created, and spiders and bugs – and He saw that it was good.
When I consider that God is the creator of all things, it gives me a completely different mindset.
