No haters here

Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

We are not to hate our brother, not even in our heart. Not only do we not express or show our hatred, we do not hate him. We do not even secretly hate our neighbor. We are to love not hate.

Not only do we not hate but we tell someone what the problem is with them. We go to them. We lay it out there so that they know the problem. A problem can’t be dealt with till it has been talked about.

It I have something in my heart against someone so that I could hate them then I am wrong. If I do not go to them and tell them so it can be made right I am wrong. If I keep it in then what I am doing will make me an accomplice to his sin. I am suffering sin or allowing sin.

It is time to be honest, to speak up, to love, to fix things that are wrong. That is who we are in Christ.
