Which Road–High or Low??

Posted: January 25, 2016 in World On The Edge


Living is full of simple aggravations and complaints. Oddly the smaller things that bug us sometimes bother us more than much more serious situations we ought to be dealing with.

Time to take out the spectacles of definition.

What is most important? What is least important?  Are hearts involved? Which things are we actually responsible for, and which are another’s responsibility?

Human beings were made to be good, yet there is a lot of corruption, evil, and violence in our world–all the work of a less noble chamber of the human heart. But we have a very noble chamber, too, and a loveable one. We only have to allow it to work that way,  to act out the love within us–love that God put there.

Love is like a fire; it begins with a spark unique to each of us.

Genuine love for ourselves and others comes from our particular character traits, our likes and dislikes, and a whole lot about what we are willing to do to get where we want to be.

What is the spark that will ignite the love in you and me? What will cause us to take the high road toward love, or the low one toward indifference or even evil?
