I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.
These days when Christians bicker they exaggerate passion into a legalistic belief and prosperity into a lukewarm belief.
I've been hot, I've been lukewarm, I've been freezing, but I've always been a headliner.
