Maxwell Struthers Burt said, "If you cannot hate evil, you cannot love good." We see both good and evil in the world around us. We need to recognize what is evil and what is good, so we can hate what is evil and love what is good. This process starts with fearing the Lord!
Hate is a harsh word that we sometimes avoid saying. However, we need to hate evil to love good. We also need to know evil in order to hate it. We can know what is evil by knowing what is good. God is good. To know Him and His goodness, we need to accept the salvation that God provides. Once we know God and choose to follow Him, we much hate evil and love good!
Know God so you can hate evil and love good!
Thank You for Your salvation and for showing me what is good. Help me to hate evil and love good. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
