Matthew 22:36-38 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."
I did a simple search using my favorite Internet Bible web site (biblegateway.com) for the words LOVE and HATE in the New International Version.
There were 508 'LOVE' references and only 74 'HATE' references!
1 John 4:7 "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
I think is would make sense to say then that, "those who do not love, do not know God".
Now, the question to consider; How do I "love" others? In other words, how does a person live a life of "love"?
Til next week... love!
