Stick to Love
By David Chadwick
I love this quote from Martin Luther King: “I have decided to stick to love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” He also said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that."
He’s right. For any of us who have ever felt anger and bitterness toward someone who has hurt us, we’ve likely realized that carrying these emotions is terribly burdensome. They bend our shoulders and crack our emotions. Eventually, we are the ones continually hurt, over and over again, by the one who hurt us initially.
Therefore, it’s much better to choose love. Stick to love. Love energizes the soul. It gives hope to the despairing. It allows life to move forward without us being stuck in the quagmire of hatred.
No one can make this choice but you. This choice will move you toward health and wholeness, while the other moves you toward bitterness and pain.
Isn’t love always the much better choice?
