Tribute to the Wise

Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel made a profound observation…

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference… To remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all.”

Jesus was never indifferent. He loved and things happened. Then He told His followers, “Love each another just as I have loved you.”

“…just as I have loved you.”

Love.

One thought on “Tribute to the Wise

  1. I look forward to the wisdom you share with us. My family and I needed to hear today’s wisdom with all our hearts. My nephew, a wonderful dad, is being persecuted and we’re all praying for his perseverance to endure without losing his faith. God help us all. America, bless God. ~ Donna Day, Servant of God
