love > logic

It's not logical for you to believe in something that you can't physically see.
It's not logical for you to put the needs of others before your own.
It's not logical to choose a life of humility instead of chasing after earthly riches.
It's not logical to endure hardship in the hopes of finding something better.
It's not logical to seek comfort in an intangible being during a time of hardship or strife.
It's not logical to be patient with those who don't deserve it.
It's not logical for a mother to slave away all day, whether at work or at home, to support her children.
It's not logical for a father to invest time and effort into a career which will only lead to stress and little income to support his family.
It's not logical to jump in front of a careening car in order to save the life of your friend.
It's not logical to live a perfect life and then endure the most painful death imaginable on the cross.
It's not logical for a Father to sacrifice His only son to save a species of wretched and unappreciative sinners.

But love overcomes all logic.

I'll be the first to admit I never was the most logical person. In a discussion or debate of logic, I'd lose 9 times out of 10. But I think I've come to terms with that. I don't need to have all the answers. I have somebody who does. Many of my actions and viewpoints would leave some of you with a puzzled look on your face. But I have experienced the greatest love that this world has ever known and ever will know. And that's good enough for me.
