Deus caritas est (God is love)

In I John 4:20 we learned that If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? Hate, “Whatcha talking about Willis?” Most will say, I don’t hate people, I just don’t like them. Well, I hate to burst your bubble. In context of this scripture John is really saying that hating people is not a Godly. Yes, God despises and dislikes sin but He loves the sinner. IOW, He doesn’t postpone His love for us because of our sin nature so why do we postpone our love for others? Hating is not always despises or disliking others rather it is when we delay or postpone expressing our love for others. So today, I encourage you to reach out and share your love with everyone. Don’t allow stupid stuff to prevent you from partaking on one of the greatest gift giving to man….LOVE! Deus caritas est (God is love) I John 4:8
