Please stop the hate! Hate is so ugly!
1 Peter 4:8 states, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”
I love how the Commodores put it many moons ago.
“Father, Help Your children
And don’t let them fall
By the side of the road,
And teach them
To love one another
That Heaven might find
A place in their hearts
‘Cause Jesus is love
He won’t let you down
And I know He’s mine forever
Oh, in my heart
We’ve got to walk on
Walk on through temptation
‘Cause His love and His wisdom
Will be our helpin’ hand
And I know the Truth
And His words will be our salvation
Lift up our hearts
To be thankful and glad.”

Pray this prayer with me:
My Lord and Savior Jesus, In your love and in your will, let me be a beacon for your love to everyone in my world.
In your love and in your will, help me be the person in my world who stops hatred one person at a time.
Keep me ever mindful of the connection all people have with each other so I may also see how important it is for me to love others.
Remind me I do not have to have great power in the world to stop hatred.
Remind me I do not have to be a person of great influence to stop the hatred that so easily infects the heart, mind, and soul of so many.
Remind me I need no earthly wealth to stop hatred.
Remind me I need no earthly army to ward off those who have hate in their hearts.
Help me to show others they are wanted and needed.
Help me to show others they are important to me and to the world.
Help me to show others how much I appreciate them.
Help me to never ignore people. In Jesus’ matchless name, I pray, Amen!!
