Where there is hatred ...

Our world is a tragic place! There is so much violence and hatred, that it is hard to imagine living without all of the pain and suffering we experience. The second line of St Francis' prayer states:

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

If you are asking how/where you can make a difference then just take a look around you and begin there. You won't have far to go in order to find people who are hurting or broken. If we could allow the love of God to fill our hearts, then we could surely make some difference to those in need.

  • Proverbs 10:12 - Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.

  • 1 John 3:11-12 - For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous.

Sow love where you can and allow the Spirit of God to water that love into LIFE. 

Living in Grace
