Now I don't know about you, but I don't want anybody saying I'm a hater.
We might hate someone because of their sin.
John 3:15 says this,
Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
When we hate people for their sin we don't recognize that we have the same sin too.
In Romans 3:10 it says,
As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;
In Mathew 7:1-5 is says to,
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
We don't not understand that we are sinners too.
We forget that we're not perfect either.
But instead of hating each other we need to love.
We need to forgive each other.
I love these verses telling how God forgave us.
Then he adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
Everyday we want to be more like Jesus.
We need to forgive like Jesus does.
And we need to love each other.
Not hate each other.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
