I just came across this and thought it was brilliant!
“If you were a James Bond villain, how would you take over the world?”
– Andrew Noseworthy
“I’d release a pheremone that increases the fear that people have about doing great things. It would only increase it by 3%, but that would be enough to wipe out most competition.
I’m convinced someone is already doing this, by the way!”
– Seth Godin (via TED Blog)
The Bible says that “…perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment” (1John 4:18)
How sad it is to live constantly afraid of getting into trouble – yet how many of us live that way all the time. Even if we’re not afraid of other people (or God) there’s the thought that somehow luck / fate or ‘karma’ will ‘pay us back’ if we mess up.
Me? I’d rather live seeking to know that ‘perfect love’ because, even if you don’t believe in the Bible that’s GOT to be better than living in fear – and thus worth searching for!
