Jesus’ Ministry – How to Hate

“If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” (Luke 14:26).

When you hear the word “hate”, what do you think of? Probably something like loathing, hostility, rejection, or avoidance. But Jesus also tells us to “Honor our father and mother” in the 5th Commandment. So what exactly does Jesus mean when he uses the word “hate”? And how can we use Jesus’ definition to set the priorities in our daily lives, our loves and our failures?
