We are not threatened when our Faith is challenged; we are threatened when our Fear is exposed. It is not that others know our thoughts, or even the Truth of our actions that define us. We are defined by the presence or absence of LOVE. 1 Timothy 1:5, "...the object and purpose is LOVE, which springs from a pure heart, a good conscience and SINCERE FAITH". Are we capable of saying NO from our deepest conviction, instead of saying YES in order to please, or even worse, to avoid perceived trouble? A coward is incapable of exhibiting LOVE; THE PRESENCE OF LOVE IS THE ABSENCE OF FEAR. A PURE HEART ABOUNDS IN LOVE, AND WE ARE NO LONGER THREATENED.
