The opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference
The opposite of being bad isn't being good, it's being loved
The opposite of sin isn't virtue, it's faith
The opposite of war isn't peace, it's creation
The opposite of failure isn't success, it's courage
So here's my request Lord......please keep me from being indifferent, merely looking good, being virtuous or wanting peace. These are the lesser things. Instead, help me to be passionate, grow in faith, be creative, have courage and REVEL in being loved.
Does anyone else have more to add to the list? How often do we put the wrong em-PHA-sis on the wrong syl-LA-ble? Gulp!
