THE CHOICE IS YOURS…MAKE IT WISELY!

Hate is brewing in our country like coffee cups in a Keurig. It’s easy to jump on the hate bandwagon especially when are cups are being filled with sensationalized and grossly inaccurate news. How many movements and protests does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop? The Bible clearly articulates the proper Christian response to hate and hostility. For example, when we are cursed, we are to return a blessing in return (Luke 6:28; Romans 12:14). When we are forced to do something we don’t want to do, we are to go the extra mile (Matthew 5:41). If we “suffer for doing good” we are to “endure it” (1 Peter 2:20). These responses are hard to do, but they demonstrate that something supernatural is motivating us, something that transcends mere human nature (Matthew 5:46-47). In Romans 12 Paul exhorted, “Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil.”
