Hatred held in the heart can't hide forever. Like underground molten lava its pressure builds and seeks release on the surface. No matter how hardened we become on the exterior bitterness will eventually break through unannounced with devastating results. We sometimes believe hatred is justified but its tyranny cannot be contained nor equitably distributed; it must be expunged entirely from our soul. Ephesians warns: "Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry and do not give the devil a foothold." Anger, if left to hang around will multiply and turn to hatred, but Spiritual freedom and unbounded joy belong to the one delivered from hatred’s grasp. Blessed Father, heal every wound of offense within me and uproot every trace of acrimony. Fill my heart with Your unfailing love and make my soul a no hatred zone.
