If you missed it, Kim Crooks Korinek wrote an article posted on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Refuse to Hate – Yield to Love. The article focuses on the power of Love:

Whether it’s extremist hate groups or the anger of a neighbor, hatred can seem like an insurmountable wall. However, even in the midst of its emotional push and pull, we are not powerless. We can refuse to meet hate with hate. However threatening hatred may appear to be, we can yield to God’s love. God is Love, and Love is always operating, replacing anything unlike Love. 

The omnipotence of Love’s dynamic presence and its inevitable influence and impact are best illustrated with the immediacy of light replacing shadow. God, Love, operates through law—a moral and spiritual force.  Christian Science refers to this moral and spiritual force as the law of God, good, the law of Life, Truth, and Love. This law of God governs and guides all the varied expressions of God.  

So what does this have to do with standing up to hate? By yielding to the omnipotence of Love, we can understand that hate is powerless. Mary Baker Eddy explains this in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, referring to Truth as another synonym for God: “Because Truth is omnipotent in goodness, error, Truth’s opposite, has no might. Evil is but the counterpoise of nothingness” (pp. 367–368). Knowing this, even in a degree, reveals how fragile and fraudulent hatred is. And because Love is omnipotent, the law of Love is equally so, and is instant and active under any circumstance.

“At thirty, man suspects himself a fool; Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; At fifty, chides his infamous delay, Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve;” ~ Edward Young

“At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At age 40, we don’t care what they think of us. At age 60, we discover they haven’t been thinking of us at all.” ~ Ann Landers

“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” ~ Mark Twain

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”  ~ Douglas MacArthur

“The measurement of life by solar years robs youth and gives ugliness to age. The radiant sun of virtue and truth coexists with being. Manhood is its eternal noon, undimmed by a declining sun.”  ~ Mary Baker Eddy
