When Hate Creeps In

"Hatred paralyzes life love releases it.  Hatred confuses life love harmonize it.  Hatred darkens life love illuminates it."  -Martin Luther King Jr. 

If we aren’t careful, we can let hate creep into our lives.  It doesn’t take much; a coworker conspires against you, a boss belittles you, a spouse sasses you—until all of the sudden you lose it.  In a matter of moments you lose your temper and testimony.  Don’t fight fire with fire.  Lay down your weapons.  Let God’s love and grace rain down on you.  Raise a white flag, surrendering every problem to a sovereign God who has the whole world and every person in the palm of His hand. 

Deliver me from my enemies, O God; protect me from those who rise up against me.  Deliver me from evildoers and save me from bloodthirsty men.  See how they lie in wait for me! Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, O LORD.  I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight!  (Psalms 59:1-4, NIV)
