Do we really believe?

Do we really believe that love is greater than hate? That it can overpower it? Is what I've been thinking about lately.

We work so hard to protect ourselves. To not get hurt. To be armed and dangerous.

What if the most powerful thing we could do in the universe is to lay down our lives in love? Turn the other cheek. Offer grace when it is least deserved. Show love to our enemies.

A beautiful idea that breaks down horribly in practice.

But what if it didn't?
