Light and Hate

John makes it crystal clear: if we hate anyone, then we're not in the light.

This is a challenging word for me.

John goes on to state the inverse, which is not always logically equivalent: if we love others, then we are in the light.

This creates the followinf biconditionals: hate = dark and love = light.

Since God = love, when I express love, I am closely connected with God.

Where I have trouble applying this in knowing when loving means expressing positive feeling tone and when love means setting limits. This is a challenge both as a dad and as a teacher.
