Looking for God in messy places
Life is about love. And love is about giving your life away.
Caring for those who suffer makes us vulnerable. But it does not make us fragile.
To be is to be loved and to give love.
Jesus never said that living a life of love would be easy or would result in earthly rewards. But it’s the only kind of life that gives us a foretaste of eternity now and extends beyond the grave. That’s what love does.
Life is about extravagant love, the love that brings life from death.
Love gives our lives an eternal meaning. Without it, we are a noisy gong. A clanging cymbal.
