God is pure, unfiltered, unadulterated Love and we were created to be loved by him and to love him and others in return.
In a world that’s full of conflict and division, yelling and proving others wrong, empathy can be a rare place of safety. And I believe this is what many are longing for.
The antidote to selfishness might not be selflessness, it might actually be self-love that is rooted in Christ, instead of ourselves.
We never know what one strategic act of kindness can do in someone’s life.
It’s so easy to fall back into the rhythm of mere functioning, but God has called us to so much more!
Hopefully, we’ll all get a little bit better at paying attention to these warning signs, loving ourselves, and, as a result, we’ll love others even better.
During times of darkness, the light shines even brighter. And, the truth is, things are pretty dark right now. That’s our cue to look like Jesus in how we live.
We make grace and love unnecessarily complicated, but Jesus made things simple.
I can love others right where I’m at. We all can’t be like Bob Goff, but we can all practice loving those around us.
I can choose to put away my cape and mask and just be me because, with God, that’s more than enough.
