Hate Evil, Not People

May 26, 2009 | by Aish.com

Hate the evil acts of the wicked, but do not hate the people
themselves. Every person is worthy of being cherished by virtue of being created in the image of the Almighty. Therefore we cannot hate another person. Rather, our love for the Almighty should be so deeply internalized, that from this love we hate evil deeds. By hating only evil actions, you elevate yourself because you are increasing
your love for the Almighty.

The next time you see someone do something evil, try to distinguish
between hatred of the act and hatred of the person.
