Love and Fear

A long-serving staff member had his final day in our school last Friday and he shared this parting prayer with us (which I would like to share with you):

There are only two feelings, love and fear:
There are only two languages, love and fear:
There are only two activities, love and fear:
There are only two motives, two procedures,
Two frameworks, two results, love and fear,
Love and fear. (-Michael Leunig)

I believe strongly that we must always examine our motivations to make certain that all we do comes out of love (God’s love) and not out of fear. Rev. Ed Bacon speaks of this extensively in his sermons as he sees everything we do coming from “the house of love” or “the house of fear.”

Remember: “Perfect love casts out fear.” May we do all things in love.

I am an ordinary man, living an extraordinary life with my wife and partner-in-greatness, Vicki. We have two amazing kids who are living incredible adventures of their own. I enjoy most things I do, but especially coffee, the beach and a good read. My opinions are my own.
