This blog is to be read and known by all
argh, I agree. A trivial example: When I was little, my brother and I used to love Cool Whip and, if my mom dared to have a tub in the freezer, we would sneak it out and devour it in a ravish fashion. ...now I hate the stuff.but it applies to life principles as well. I've experienced that as well. argh.
I love you Jeff.
I hate you Jeff.
I feel you on that one.
Okay, I'm back to loving you again. I think the key here is moderation...and less idolization...or something.
But sometimes, because of the nature of the thing that you have indulged in, you should end up hating the thing you once loved. And even more amazing is that God can make us hate sin with a greater passion than that which we loved it in the first place.
Amen to that! Work that change, Lord Jesus!
Hate is a strong word.Know I know that Anh does not hate Jeff. But how often do we hate other people and not say it? Do you hate the person who cut you off in the intersection? How about the person that ruined your marriage by tempting your wife to sleep with him? Or the person who killed your best friend by driving drunk? Or how about the person who tries to take over our job, or does a better job than us, thus inciting feelings of inadequacy or inferiority? All those things evoke hatred and anger out of us towards that person. But can we we hate the very person God died for? Have we thought that the very person we hate God loves so much He sacrificed everything for? Have we really thought of that and internalized it? Just some random thoughts this morning
