A funny thing happened...chapter 14/Getz

I am a turtle. I hide my fears in a vest pocket. I try to enjoy this as security. With security there is peace. But when the shell-cracker arrives, the pick pocket makes a tangential passing, peace is lost and security exposed as false. Thus it becomes known that even in seclusion there is not security, rather vulnerability. Now to what am I vulnerable? If I am vulnerable to God, then Love enfills and His power enables and rather than reactions of angst and fear, senses of security and peace abound. An abounding peace must by application be intentionally inclusive, and if inclusive by mutual acceptance, then is there security.

Surely by these scriptures is this concept underwritten:

KJV Romans 12:16
16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

KJV Romans 12:18
18. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

KJV Romans 14:19
19. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

KJV Romans 15:5-6
5. Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
6. That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

KJV Ephesians 4:1-3
1. I Therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2. With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3. Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
