Marsha's Musings: Love, Hate, Light and Darkness (1 John 2:9-11 ESV)

Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. (1 John 2:9-11 ESV)

John says that we can not walk in the light if we hate our brother.  Of course he is speaking of our fellow humans, not just those of our family.  Are there those that we view with contempt, that we hate? If so, this should be cause for us to stop and examine our hearts before God.
