On September 11th, 2001 Wendy and I, like many people found ourselves watching television as the images of horror broadcast around the world. We had planned to go out for dinner…and we did…but it was an uncomfortable meal. It seemed ironic to me that today people protested the building of a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center…while at the same time a preacher who had threatened to burn the Koran backed down, but only after creating a world wide stir. It seems in 9 years we still have lots of hate in the world.
Jesus warned us that hate is as sinful as murder…and of course doing harm to others comes right out of a hateful heart. That’s why Paul wrote…and the greatest of these “is love”.
