The Answer

Updated: Oct 18, 2018

You wouldn’t happen to have an opinion would you?

As I walked up to a group of people with this question, I was surprised that nobody had an answer. Everybody was busy on their little devices, playing games or talking on their phone.

I thought, oh my, time is passing away, things are happening and nobody is noticing. I wonder if I should tell them or warn them, would they listen or even hear me? I decided to ask. I had a prompting within me to move forward against a feeling of fear that was trying to paralyze my action.

Then I noticed one person looking at me, waiting for the question.

I heard myself asking and there it was, everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at this one person for an answer.

He hesitated and finally answered. I held my breath. He pointed to a passage on his device and the curiosity arose amongst all, I could feel it.

He answered the question by saying, “I don’t have an opinion because I live by this "and he pointed again to the writing on his tablet.

I asked him to read it. He read “greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”.

I was touched by his words deep in my soul and it was like a new door of understanding opened for me.

Later when I thought about what I had heard I came to this conclusion:

Love is above all things.

I walked away wondering, who was that man without an opinion, but words of life instead? I was deeply touched in my thoughts and heart, I wanted to spend more time with him.
