Seeds of Hate
Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.
Have you ever encountered someone that is so hateful? So instead of analyzing this, let’s see what happens when someone is harboring hate and how it infiltrates into families, friendships, encounters in the workplace and even doing daily activities.
A person may have been wronged and then starts a negative spiral. Anything that is done to them agitates them. They aren’t concerned with how you feel, just getting even with you. Now many people will say “not everyone wants to be angry” but truly it comes from a broken heart and spirit.
This is how you can deal with the hurting that is in that person.
Listen– be supportive
When they get agitated, ask them how the circumstance is affecting them?
Don’t be judgmental, like saying “there’s something wrong with you”
Teach them what it is to be kind and that kindness can be overtaken by hatred.
If you are in the midst of many who hate, always stand your ground, be Christ like in nature and ready to be persecuted even in the middle of a war of people.
Try not to provoke anyone to anger, but be gentle and wise when you speak, choose your words carefully.
Ask others what you can do for them, if they are receptive to prayer.
Hate can only spread like weeds, but kindness can bring a peace that stands out in front of God, let your peace shine.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
