murder?

ever read scripture and ignore it? i have. for years i did not care for those things that caused me to change my life. here is one of them:
"Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know very well that eternal life and murder don't go together. [1 john 3:15]
this one gets to me, because for years i hated people - come on, admit it, we all did - but that can change. when i realized that my hating someone was so wrong that it caused me to murder another - wow - that changed my life. today, think about those you hate and ask yourself if it is worth it all.

I've been thinking lately about what it means to hate my brother. I heard a preacher say (and I'm paraphrasing) simply choosing to not care about someone is actually hating them. I beginning to think that when it comes to people, we either love them or hate them. There's no middle ground of indifference. Indifference is hate. That's a hard pill to swallow (for me), because if I accept it as being true, then where does that leave me? I am indifferent to a great many people. I don't like thinking that if I'm indifferent, then I'm not loving them and if I'm not loving them, then, perhaps, I'm hating them.

This being a real Christian ain't easy, is it?

I don't think we should be thinking about those we hate. That's too general. The Apostle's issue is much more specific than that. We should be thinking about the brothers we hate. John does not allow us the luxury of dodging this by dealing in generalities.

"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you."
