The Tension In The Middle

Posted: May 7, 2008 in Daily Blog

During our lifetime we find ourselves moving from one to the other.  Our natural tendencies push us inward, our maturity (hopefully) pushes us outward.  Where do you see yourself moving lately?  Are you becoming more like the words on the left or the words on the right?  We all live in the tension between them, we all struggle with this daily…  This is just a helpful reminder of how human dignity requires us to be thinking not only of ourselves.
