Im quoting SoftLetters here...

"i've come to realize that i only love God as much as i love the person i love the least. i am to be an instrument of peace, of mercy, of community, of justice and guess what? hating people, even in a passive way, destroys that. there is no place for hate in a peacelover and there is no room for such darkness in someone who wishes to dwell in the light of the Lord. looking in a spiritual mirror is uncomfortable but time and experience has told me that the pain of dealing with myself, dying to myself to follow the Kingdom is exponentially rewarding."

I don't think I've ever felt as convicted as I did after reading that passage. I'm going to write it down in the notebook I keep in my purse with favorite verses and quotations. (Yes, I actually have a mini notebook for just such a purpose).
