Hostage of Hatred

Rid yourselves of …
anger, rage, malice, slander.
        —Colossians 3:8

Hatred reduces us to slavery, for what we hate takes control of our mind.

We are a hostage of those we loathe, for they hold our thoughts captive.

Antagonism pollutes the mind, filling it with the poison of anger, outrage, bitterness, and resentment.

Booker T. Washington, a frequent target of prejudice and insult, said, “I will not let any man reduce my soul to the level of hatred.”

Hatred has caused a lot of problems, but has never solved one.

You may win a fight with a skunk, but you’ll pay a high price.

Hate hurts the hater more than the hated.
