Live from Sarajevo

An Extraordinary List

A week ago I had the privilege of speaking at a church here in Sarajevo. We talked about this list and how these things begin to show up in our lives. I thought it might be a good way to start the week.

Love.

Joy.

Peace.

Patience.

Kindness.

Goodness.

Faithfulness.

Gentleness.

Self-control.

 

For each word I did an image search on google. I learned a few things (perhaps for later discussion).

  • Almost every picture for LOVE was about the romantic kind.
  • There was much more about world PEACE than any kind of internal peace.
  • Animals are much better at being PATIENT than humans are.
  • As a society, we understand KINDNESS best of all.
  • It is very hard to represent GOODNESS in a picture (hence the Guinness add). Perhaps that is because we don’t have a universal agreement on what goodness is.
  • There are a lot of internet resources to help you get some SELF-CONTROL.
What do you think? Feel free to attach some pictures of your own.
