Hatred is Destructive – Howard Thurman

November 20, 2018

As I begin to re-read Thurman’s book, Jesus and the Disinherited, these words of his hit hard as I contemplate the world today…

You must abandon your fear of each other and fear only God. You must not indulge in any deception and dishonesty, even to save your lives. Your words must be Yea-Nea; anything else is evil. Hatred is destructive to hated and hater alike. Love your enemy, that you may be children of your father who is in heaven.

Hatred is destructive to hated and hater alike.

Wow… that is indeed something to ponder…
