These are indeed dark and perilous times that we live in. This is also the age of grace so let us demonstrate that grace which God has shown through His Son Jesus. It is so easy to become hardened by what happens to us and what we see going on around us.
When we are provoked we must use God's escape plan. (1Corinthians 10:13) Jesus understands us because He was tempted in all the ways that we are tempted, yet He did not sin. (Hebrews 4:15) Let us all be peacemakers and therefore be found worthy of the name "children of God". (Matthew 5:9)
Let the LOVE of God be the anti-venom for the hate that hate made.
