But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:11 KJV
The man who hates is dwelling in the dark;
The light of Christ is nowhere to be found.
He stumbles, trips and falls far off the mark,
For blindness steals his vision all around.
Both love and hate can’t share the selfsame space;
The heart of man is not designed that way.
Antipathy just shows a lack of grace,
And without grace the heart will fade away.
Call on the Lord the instant hate arrives;
He’ll lead you to forgive as He forgives.
It won’t be easy but you will survive,
And you will walk the path of light and live.
A hater does not know the way he goes.
A blind man in the dark has no repose.
REMEMBER: Hate drags you down. Love lifts you up.
