Is the passion of a killer good? No way! Is the passion of someone that sings a beautiful song good? It is very inspiring!
So passion is neither good nor bad. It all depends on how it is used.
Like a coin, there are two sides to passion. There is the beautiful side of passion. Without passion will something amazing be achieved? Will a writer write ten articles in one day on ExpertsColumn? Will someone climb Mount Everest? Will a musician write many beautiful songs?
However, passion like anything else can be misused. There is the ugly side of passion. Does the rightkind of passion drive a child molester? Does the right kind of passion drive a parent to sexually abuse their children? Does the right kind of passion move someone to rape their date?
Passion needs to be controlled and applied to constructive activities. Passion out of control is like an automobile with no brakes, a menace to society and to oneself.
Will you learn how to control your passions? Will you build positive passions and eliminate negative passions? How doesone do that?
It all depends on which passions we feed. They are both within us. Whichever one we feed and encourage will come out.
It is like your garden. Whatever you plant you will harvest. It is like your mind and heart, whatever you watch and meditate on, that is what will come out.
If we watch pornography, how do you think we will view people? If we drive carelessly, what do you think is our view of life?
Television and the internet have become cesspools of filth. It is like a garbage dump, one has to go through a lot of garbage to find something useful.
We have to be selective about what we watch. We have to be selective about what we do and which passion we will cultivate, the positive or the negative. While the choice is ours, the consequences are in God’s hands!
