Did you think, "hate?" I did. Our pastor did that little experiment in church on Sunday, and everyone else thought, "hate," too. But he had a different answer.
"The opposite of love isn't hate," he explained. "It's fear. The opposite of love is fear. "
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. I John 4: 18
Fear drives us to dark places, places filled with suspicion, anxiety, anger, doubt . . . all the mess we know about. But love stands opposite of fear, and that is a cool thought. It is a good concept to hang onto, as we enter this new year. As we start fresh, assess goals and think ahead, it is important to ask: Am I being driven by love, or by fear?
What did you think was the opposite of love?
