Strength to Love

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Strength to Love (1963) by Martin Luther King Jr.

 “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,”

Luke 6:27 NASB

Lord, give me the strength to love.
