“…in love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love…” 1 John 4:18, NJB, italics and emphasis mine
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after an injury. The body will often produce extra thick fibrous tissues—scar—which is more resistant to injury. This is a natural way of the skin to protect itself against possible future injuries. Nonetheless, the scar tissues are inferior functionally, e.g. less resistant to UV radiation, sweat glands and hair follicles do not grow back on scars.
Most of us have grown “scar tissues” in areas that we have been hurt before. We have become “thick, hard, tough” in some respect—lest we are hurt again. This explain why we don’t trust, love one another the way we ‘used to’; we are less committed to ministry, church or community…scars…if we build our future on them, we are building from an inferior place and will not be able to operate to full potential.
