“Why do people hate you? God is love.”

 Terence Scott, a New Orleans fourth grader, reminded everyone of what we all know and forget to practice – God is love.”  After the president’s speech in New Orleans, Terence asked “Why do people hate you?” Then he added, “They are supposed to love you. God is love.” Wow!

            Jesus said, “Unless you change and become like little children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” There are thousands who do not love the president and thousands more who don’t even like him. Unfortunately there are thousands who really do hate him and many of them call themselves Christian. According to the Scriptures, you cannot hate your fellow man and love God. You cannot love the Creator and hate His creation. There should always be questioning, disagreement, debate, but hate of an individual or a nation has no place in religious dialogue. We all have something to learn from this fourth grader, a lesson that is long overdue. Thank you Terence.
