Do You Really Know What Love Is?

Proverbs 10:12 (NIV)

12 Hatred stirs up conflict,
    but love covers over all wrongs.

*If you truly have a dislike for someone or something, those feelings are eventually going to come out of your mouth because that's how you feel in your heart. You may not necessarily tell that person that you can't stand them, but chastisement, being rude, having an attitude, being disrespectful, or not trying to understand the other person is a form of hatred. We are not entitled to invite everyone into our personal circle, but we are called to love them. So, if someone chooses to back away or express concern of how you treat them, love will listen while hate will continue to say "I'm going to do it my way." Let's try doing it God's way. We have been put on this earth to work together, not tear each other down. We have enough hate in the world without contributing to it.
