Hate is Taught!

John 13:34 says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

1 John 3:14-15 says, We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.

Not to long ago I was an event in Chilton. It was a Cinco De Mayo celebration and wow, what a great time we had. As I stood there in line a small black child around 18 months came walking up to my wife and I with his arms up wanting us to pick him up, his mom watching the whole thing. So my wife picked the child up and the child gave her the biggest hug. Then he came to me and gave me the biggest hug. This child never once saw color. There was no hate in sight. You see hate is taught. It's taught by small words or gestures. This world is full of hate. The devil wants us to hate one another. Keep us divided and guess what. It's working.

Loves comes naturally. Just like this little baby boy. He loved and never thought about color, stranger, or anything like that, all he did was love. We could learn a lot from kids.

You know it is easier to love than hate. People don't understand that. But people who hate are missarabl whether they will admit it or not and people who love are just happier.

God is love. The Bible says in 1 John 4:16, So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die for our sins. If we would just turn our eyes upon Jesus, we would love just as the child did and just like Jesus.
