CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith & Life for the Years of Winter…
Love isn’t the most important thing, it’s the only thing. That’s what Jesus said.
It’s the opposite of Vince Lombardi’s famous “Winning isn’t the most important thing; it’s the only thing.”
Vince expresses very clearly the conventional wisdom. The wisdom of Jesus is never conventional, always revolutionary.
Conventional wisdom has only one winner. Everyone else is a loser. The Jesus wisdom makes a winner of everyone.
“Your sons and daughters will prophesy, and your old men shall dream dreams.” [Joel 2:28.] Today is my birthday. I am an old man dreaming dreams, dreams of winning, dreams of love.
In the cold of winter, warmth is the only thing, and it doesn’t come from winning. It comes from love.
