Only A Changed Heart Can Conquer Hate

Standard

I know and understand love conquers hate, but before a person can love; their heart must first be changed. Look around at the world we live in today, there is so much hatred. People seemingly hate for no reason, but there is always underlying reasons as to why. Hatred is a learned behavior. It’s learned through parenting, family, friends, other people, environments, and surroundings; and it starts early in a person’s life.

Some people are so bitter; you can see it in the way they speak and act. They are mean, cruel, and unhappy people. I’ve dealt many people who are in their places of business but they are mean and have no customer etiquette. They are plain rude. This anger comes from the inside; the true essence of who we are. It comes from years of learned behavior. People get used to acting a certain way; they don’t even realize how they’re acting. That doesn’t make it right!!

Nowadays killing another human being means nothing to some people. These types of people have deep rooted issues they’ve not faced. They’ve carried these issues around for years and it has made them into very sad and angry people. They hate themselves and they’re mad at the world. Through the media we’ve seen many have committed murder. People have taken the lives of many they don’t even know out of anger and rage build up over the years.

No person on the face of this earth is exempt from troubles in life. We will go in and out of our valleys, up and down our hills and mountains, but life goes on. How we deal with those ups and downs is indicative of how we will weather those storms. Problem is many don’t even try; they go through those periods of life complaining, but never trying to change to become better people. They continue to do the same things. They hold in anger not realizing it’s affecting the very essence of who they are. Anger turns into hate and hate into violence in some form or another IF it’s not dealt with.

Over the years anger has built up in these angry people and as mentioned earlier, this anger has turned into hate. It sabotaged their lives and it affects them mentally, physically, and spiritually. It makes some people into the walking dead. They are alive, but they are dead inside. They have no peace, joy, or happiness. A lot of these people project this hatred onto others and oftentimes the outcome is deadly. Things never have to get this way if people would stop downplaying what’s ailing them. If they would face things and deal with them, and stop holding it all inside. Bottom line is nothing but a changed heart will conquer their hate.

No one can receive love if their heart isn’t changed to embrace it. Unfortunately many were never shown or taught what love is, but this doesn’t mean a person can’t learn if they choose to. I am praying for peace of minds all over the world. Showing love is something people seem to have a hard time doing these days. It seems that families are against one another and people hate folks they don’t even know. It’s all very sad and disturbing. So please join me in praying for peace across our world.
