Hate. It's like the rash from the black plague. Contagious, obvious to everyone who passes by, hard to treat, and sign of a fatal illness.
And our country is brimming with it.
I can't make it half a scroll down my Facebook feed and I see another angry post. I wish I could say that it was just the lost hating each other. That at least would be normal. But instead what I see is the Christians I know becoming angrier and angrier at the world around them.
And it's not even election year.
On this Make a Difference Monday I would like to suggest some practical things that Christians should remember about hate.
1. Not all battles are important. Under no circumstances should a Christian be lured into an angry and hateful exchange over issues that are in no way spiritual.
