Hate the Evil Love the Good

Ro 12:9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

Malicious slanderers and those who judge are poisons that kill secretly and slowly. The venom spewed out by the words of a slanderer often hit with so much force that it may be difficult yet not impossible for an individual to make a full and complete recovery. Although the words of a slanderer are heard clamorously, they usually come from a source that often chooses to remain invisible and unknown. The actions of an evil man should not taint our existence. For the word of God has already warned that weapons would form but they could not prosper.

The word of God says in Amos 5:15 that we are to hate the evil and love the good.

The word of God says  the wickedness of Nineveh came up before the Lord. Although there was evil in Nineveh, God saw the good. The word of God says  Nineveh was a great city. God raised up Jonah to go into Nineveh and bring revival. Jonah could only see the evil. He could not see the good.

God knows the end from the beginning because when the king heard the words of the Lord, he rose up, took off his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. He decreed a fast for every man and beast in the city and they prayed to God and turned from their evil ways. God hates evil but because He loves good, Nineveh was spared.

Jonah 3:10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

Do not do evil for evil. It is not up to us to settle scores. The Lord says that vengeance is His and He will repay.

Ro 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord

Do not grow weary in doing well. Hate the evil but love the good. The word says if the enemy is hungry feed him. If he is thirsty give him a drink. When an evil man curses you, turn around and bless him. When you are persecuted you should pray for those who persecute you. Every opportunity you have to do good, just do it! For it is pleasing to God.

If you continue to hate the evil but love the good, in due time you will reap the harvest of the righteous.

Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
