Love‎ > ‎

Love takes no pleasure in what hurts you.

You cannot truly love someone without hating what is hurting them. Failure to get angry with what is hurting them is an indication you do not really love them. You only love them because of your "need for them to be nice to you."

Sometimes you are not aware of what hurts you. Anything that misrepresents God hurts you. 


 IF someone has not loved you enough to hate what hurts you, it is not God who has not loved you enough to hate what hurts you.

18         a heart that devises wicked schemes,
        feet that are quick to rush into evil,

        and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16To those selling doves He said, “Get these out of here! How dare you turn My Father’s house into a marketplace!”

17His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for Your house will consume Me.

Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Romans 13:10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
