1 John 4 - Key

v20

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

Do we act towards our brothers-in-the-Lord, and to our brothers-in-the-world, more like we love them, or like we hate them? If we truly love God, we must also love our brothers.

Application

James 5:9
Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

One way to love our brothers instead of hating them, would be to make sure we're not holding any grudges against them. I'll work on not holding grudges against my brothers.
