1 John 3:15: Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
My dilemma is this. Every summer, there are a multitude of birds that migrate north again to the exact same area around my house. These birds, I think mostly sparrows, among others, will begin LOUD chirping at 4:30 AM. The decibel level of these birds is so obnoxious, that my wife and I need to close our windows in order to be able to sleep, and even still, their obnoxious chirping is repetitive, repetitive, repetitive, (you get the picture) and loud, and it goes on for hours. I’ve finally resorted to closing the windows AND putting in ear plugs just to be able to sleep.
These birds also love to swoop in and swarm in my garage every time I open it and it causes me extra time to shoo them out. They made a nest one year on top of the garage door opener, and I have a feeling that’s why I needed a new one this year.
And on top of everything else, they do their special “duty” everywhere.
I hate these birds. I can’t sleep, and if I do, I have to close the windows in the hot summer and get awakened every morning just to put in cumbersome ear plugs.
Is my emotion a strong dislike or hate, and if it is hate, is this mortal? I can’t stand these freaking birds. I know God created all the creatures and they are just doing what they do, but how in the world can I just dismiss them?
