Is love really more powerful than hate?

I find I'm confronted by this question a lot lately when faced with current events:

Is love really more powerful than hate?

Hate seems to be scoring some major blows.

I do know this, when big hate is winning so much it makes me really intolerant of little hate like pettiness, ugly comments or just plain mean. They feel like little echoes of the much bigger problem.

And yet, the only "weapon" we have against both big and little hate is love.

And we are so small. How can people armed only with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control really change things?

Sometimes it feels like the meek will never inherit the earth.
