Feelings


Feelings come to us,
Passively;
Agape comes from us,
Actively,
By our free choice
God is agape,
And agape is not feeling.
So God is not feeling.
That does not make him or agape
Cold and abstract.
Just the opposite:
God is love itself
Faith is like an anchor
Hope is like a compass or a navigator.
It gives us direction,
And it takes its bearings
From the stars.
