Love and Hate

Let those who love the Lord hate evil. PSALM 97:10
 
Isn’t it interesting to see the words love and hate in the same sentence.  More than that, God says that if we love Him, we should hate.  But notice what we should hate.  It is not people that we should hate but rather evil.  Love doesn’t condone or make excuses for evil.  It does not rename or redefine evil.  Love hates evil.  Love hates what evil does to people.  If you love God, you should hate that which is evil and overcome it with good.
