Choose Love

“All your life, you will be faced with a choice.
You can choose love or hate. . .
I choose love.”

― Johnny Cash

We are all given the choice–love or hate.

Suspicion leads to suspicion
Resentment builds on resentment
Anger begets anger
Hate reciprocates hate

Hate. . .
kills
ends
dismembers
silences
ruins
separates
hurts
harms
destroys

Love. . .
offers
gives
lightens
eases
comforts
cares
generates
fosters
soothes
builds
continues
saves

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Ephesians 4:2

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John 4:8
