The Latin derivative for heart is the word cor. From this word, we get the words discourage and encourage. These words are totally opposed, and address the core of our humanity. Today, we celebrate the life of one of the greatest humans, John the Baptist, at least according to Jesus. John spoke out for truth knowing his words would provoke a killer. And sure enough, he was executed for the cause of truth. However, he died  knowing that his life had been a grand success because he introduced Jesus the messiah to the world. Your challenge and mine is to walk in his sandals. By what we speak and how we live, we can actually give birth to Christ, and our lives will be a unique success
