We do a lot of things God doesn’t like seeing or hearing, yet he never shuts us out because of it. He always forgives, listens, and loves.
It makes sense – the desire to protect yourself – but how do you do that and invest in community as we are called? How do you learn to trust people and protect yourself at the same time?
If I couldn’t hear the truth myself, I needed to talk to someone who could speak it to me.
In order to continue loving selflessly, we have to make sure we have love to give.
