If we really love God, then we would not have to wish for something bad or harmful towards those in spite. It is very ironic to say that there are indeed Christians who lash out and curse those who they do not like or agree with. In fact, why do we, as Christians, feel the need to put others down? Is it because they do not wholly agree with our beliefs or what we expect from them? This is not what God would want for His sons and daughters to approach and treat others. If we can practice all good things in the name of God, our perspectives and attitudes towards others will be justified and solidified in love. Galatians 5: 22-23 states:

“But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. Against such things, there is no law.”

Love is patient, love is kind, and love is the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Although we may not approve and see eye-to-eye with others, in the end, God shows his unconditional love towards everyone. And we should honor and show that as well.
