Guest Post: Steve Kline

Contemplating how love and fear are opposites, Steve Kline took a few liberties with 1 Corinthians 13 and wrote the following:

Love sees the best in people and fear sees the worst.

Fear is impatient and is evil; fear envies and lusts for what others have; 
fear parades the self for all to see; fear puffs up; fear is rude, disrespectful, and demeaning, 
fear seeks its own gain, fear is provoked and brings the self under the control of what is feared; 

Fear thinks evil continuously; fear rejoices in iniquity and lawlessness; fear rejoices in lies;
fear is impatient, it bears nothing and demands everything now; 
fear believes nothing and is skeptical of everyone; 

Fear despairs and says all is lost; 
fear waits for nothing and takes action immediately.

I have acted in that fear. Sadly, I still do. 

But, praise God I'm learning more and more to walk by, with, and in, Christ.
