“He who hates disguises it with his lips, but he lays up deceit in his heart. When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, for there are seven abominations in his heart.” (Proverbs 27:24-25)
One of the signs that our hearts are filling with hate for someone is when our words no longer match our actual sentiments. Anyone can sound friendly in a public setting or use good manners because culture and society dictate that they should… but our hearts tell the true story.
Do we wish the best for a person? Do we want them to succeed? Do we wish they knew the full extent of how we feel about them or do we fear our innermost thoughts being exposed?
“And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)
