Let’s LMFL

by Bo Bryson | No Comments

As I walk in the treatment room, a patient is already lying on their back. They say, “All ready for ya doc.” I smile – say thanks and then I notice their shirt. It reads, ‘Love More Fear Less.’ I say: “Nice shirt. It seems we do quite the opposite at times.” lmfl2That comment led to a few minute discussion which was good for both the patient and I. And if you are wondering, I had no fear to show the patient some love with a chiropractic hug :)

Later that day, I thought about those words, “Love More Fear Less” and then this came to mind: Let’s LMFL! With so many acronyms out there, I figured this one was sure to pop up on Google but it did not. Maybe I should trademark it right now or at least make a tshirt?!? Or not…

Here’s the deal: we can buy the shirt…we can wear the shirt…but do we do the shirt? For myself, I still have plenty of times I love less than I would like and fear much more than I dare admit. But I will not let that deter me from LMFL’ing. I was reminded that day in the office; we are all imperfect and sincere in our efforts and most desire to LMFL but are unsure what to do. Below I have given a few helpful links and verses.

Love More: (1) ‘…and the greatest of these is love…” 1 Cor. 13:13 (2) ‘…love God, love others…’ Matt. 22:37-39 (3) ‘…perfect love drives out fear…’ 1 John 4:18

Fear Less: (1) ‘…fear not for I am with you…’ Is. 41:10 (2) ‘…fear not for the Lord is my strength & song…” Is. 12:2 (3) ‘…fear less, take courage; I have overcome…’ John 16:33

I will leave you with this quote: “The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be.” (Dalai Lama)
