This morning in my quiet time I meditated on Proverbs 8:13 and 8:34-36:
"The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate...Blessed is the one who listens to me [wisdom], watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors. For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord, but he who fails to find me injures himself; all who hate me love death."
Life is not a matter of loving OR hating; life is a matter of choosing what we will love and what we will hate. Oh Friends, if we only loved Christ with passion and hated sin with an equal passion we would be so much farther down the road with him.
