Proverbs 10
Author: Daniel Wheeler

Hatred stirs up conflict,
but love covers over all wrongs.
(Pr. 10:12)

So simple and so profoundly true.

I see this in a world of malice,
never resting from its search
to conquer and destroy.

I find this in those I know,
some who shelter hate as if a dying ember; and
still others who have grace to bury it in ash.

I see this in myself – in the animus
leaping from the shadow of my heart and from
the harm it leaves behind.

I find this in Almighty God and his
great undying love, a light that
blinds him to offense.

So profoundly simple and so true.

Where you see strife, there
you will find hatred;
Find forgiveness and
you will have peace.
