I wonder if, when I make a move that could be seen as hedging, in regards to my deepest hopes and desires, am I proving faithless or just being pragmatic?
When faith is shaken, what is the realistic human response to the fear of being disappointed? Having lived through my own personal letdowns, the last thing I want is to contribute to similar despondency in anyone else's life.
The cause and effect of human emotions and where and when feelings begin and end is a mystery for all the ages. It can even be illustrated as a mathematical equation, just with constantly fluctuating variables.
All human relations have a divine example in the way that God loves us, forever. If we follow that example we cannot go wrong.
