Prayer

Hate and love

“…all of you are equal as bothers and sisters” (Matthew 23:8; NLT).

We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other (Romans 12:5; NLT).

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbour’ and hate your enemy. “But I say, love your enemies!” (Matthew 5:44-5; NLT).


Lord,
We are all brothers and sisters
Of one family – the human race.

When we despise others,
In truth, we despise ourselves.

When we hate others,
In truth, we hate ourselves.

When we fear others,
In truth, we fear ourselves.

And when we love others,
In truth, we love ourselves.
