Recently at church we were presented with two lists.
One list was love, charity, purity, honesty, humility, courage, and hope.
The other list was hate, rage, despair, jealousy, and pride.
Listening to some conversations at church reminds me of one of the lists.
The actions, attitudes, and rhetoric of state leaders we elected calls to mind one of the lists.
The voices that are popular in our culture find their energy from one of the lists.
The lesson taught that one of the lists will lead to misery, the other to goodness.
Who is leading us? Who are we following? The lists tell us.
