Hatred is one of the most destructive emotions a person can feel. It can corrode a person’s soul, and lead to a complete loss of humanity. It is the emotion that leads to genocide, ethnic cleansing, and all other forms of mass murder.

The cost of hatred is always high and can never be fully calculated. It is the cost of lost lives, of families and communities destroyed, and of futures that will never be realized. The cost of hatred is also the cost of missed opportunities, of relationships that could have been, and of a world that could have been a better place.

I never knew it was that costly,
I wanted to know the cost of hatred, so I decided to branch to a shop where it’s being sold.
As a good businessman who was looking for a buyer, he rushed out to ask what I

wanted; I told him I wanted just a cup of hatred, and then he smiled and asked if I can afford it. ‘How much does a cup cost?’ I asked? Hmmmmm, he took in a deep breath, then started:

?? it will first of all take away your inner peace
?? it will cost you incurable worries
?? it will eat up your heart
?? you will be deeply bitter whenever you set your eyes on the person you hate
?? when others are celebrating him/her you will always be looking for why he/she doesn’t deserve it
?? you will become so weak and tired of seeing the person
?? whenever he /she laughs, you will cry
?? while others are busy planning their future, you will be busy looking for how to pull him/her down
?? The Spirit of God will leave you and you will become the temple of devil where demons reside.
?? you will die before your time and go to hell.
The seller was still counting what a cup of hatred will cost me, when I shunned him, realizing how expensive hatred is.
I left because I knew deep down, I could not afford it.
I refuse to pay such a huge amount when I can love cheaply.

Friends don’t allow anybody to sell hatred to you so exorbitantly when you can love so easily and cheaply. Indeed, THE COST OF HATRED is human lives and restiveness.
