Love and Fear

“The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is fear.” – William Sloane Coffin

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts our fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.” 1 John 4:18

The two drivers of human behavior are love and fear. Love is the power that brings us together with each other, with nature, with the universe. Fear is the power that drives us apart, separates us, causes us to seek distinction in our world.
