“Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart:” (Leviticus 19: 17)

This verse is a deeper approach to the Ten Commandments. The directive here takes those commandments beyond mere behavior and into the intention in the heart. It is not enough that we do not strike out against another with the purpose of causing them harm or attempting to extract revenge. It is not even enough to be silent about our dislike of another individual, another race, another group of people with views unlike our own.

We shall not, must not hate within. We mustn’t harbor anything other than love for each other. This is the law. This is the commandment that Moses announced and Jesus further defined. We must love one another. No exceptions. And we must do it in our hearts, within the deepest part of ourselves.

This is not always easy and it certainly can’t be forced, for love is nothing if it is not genuine, sincere. But God’s laws are kind and achievable. He has given us the innate ability to love Him, to love good, and by doing so, to naturally love all that He has made—our fellow brothers and sisters, the true ideas that He created out of His own Love. We needn’t approve of everything that we see acted out by men, but we must see past that false identity, that distraction from that one’s true sweet nature, and obey the mandate to Love.

This is not a call to give without receiving, to martyr ourselves while a wrongdoer gets off the hook. It is a demand that we do what we do best and what ultimately will make us feel right—healthy, happy, clean, good, at peace. Love is the only way to this contentment. Listen to God’s direction, and seek diligently to be free of any hate in your heart. Each occasion to do this will open the gates of heaven for you as only Love can do.

    I am reminded of what Eddy wrote in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “To love one’s neighbor as one’s self is a divine idea; but this idea can never be seen, felt, nor understood through the physical senses.” Truly loving another can only be done by recognizing the reality and presence of their God-created spiritual identity.
