Growing up I had a best friend named Susie We shared everything She knew my every thought dream and fear I always saved her a seat on the bus When we became teenagers we double dated We were each others counselor confidant and sometimes even a shoulder to cry on I loved her very much and could not imagine not being her friend until she betrayed me I discovered that she had been seeing my boyfriend behind my back After learning of her deceit I hated her so much that just the sight of her literally turned my stomach Often it is difficult to distinguish if the actions of others originate from love or hate There are many variables in deciding whether someone acted out of love or hate It is important to learn to distinguish between love and hate As children our parents punish us for doing wrong not because they hate us but rather that they love us and want us to grow up to be well mannered likeable people At the time they were disciplining us we could not understand how they could use a phrase such as This hurts me more than it does you When we reach adulthood it is much easier to see how it could hurt them to have to be strict God loved Adam and Eve because they were his children even though they had sinned by eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil He hated that they had not listened to his instructions As much as he loved them he had to punish them for disobedience in order to teach them that he had their best interests in mind Our parents made decisions for us because they love us Decisions based on love are for the benefit of the loved one while decisions based on hate are for the one who hates benefit or selfish desire Decisions driven by hate
