Morals of the Clone Wars 3.10: Heroes on Both Sides

Moral: Fear is a great motivator.

We all are driven by fear–at least some of the time. And some of the time it’s good: fear keeps us out of danger. But fear can also make us do stupid things.

Fear can keep a church from reaching out to the people who need the church. Fear can keep a church all one skin-tone. Fear can keep a church from standing up for injustices. 

Fear is a great motivator. But it shouldn’t be the greatest. 

Love should be the greatest motivator. 

Love changes the world. Love has brought the gospel to the unreached corners of the earth. Love has touched the untouchable. Love has brought about justice when there was none.

Love sent His Son to die on the cross so all might have salvation. Not fear.
