Nothing devours energy like conflict. It’s a great gaping maw into which all goodness and potential disappear. Jesus said, “Resist nothing.” His ministry was a mere three years, from which we learn that a long life is not important and that peaceful men have inestimable power. They “mount up with wings as eagles; they run and are not wearied; they walk and do not faint.”
Love does not apologize. Or make mistakes. Jesus never said, “I’m sorry.”
Do I dream of the future? Plan and train for it? Then I’m fear-soaked. “Take no thought for tomorrow.” We’re not invited to compromise. Not a few thoughts. Not one thought. No thought.
There are two ways I can go: I can please myself or I can please other people. The most difficult path is the first one. This is “the narrow way” Jesus spoke about.
My children are not my children. In the first place, they are not children. In the second place, they are not mine
