i don’t understand people who fear living a simple life and remaining unrecognised by the world. i’m happy if i have touched the lives of my parents, siblings and that of the man i will spend my life with and my future children, and there is no shame in leading an unremarkable life and remaining unknown.
even when I’m in a spiritual drought,
even when I’m weak,
even when I fail,
even when my heart isn’t focused,
even when I sin,
God is still at work in my life.
God still uses me.
My flaws do not keep Him from loving me.
My tainted flesh doesn’t keep Him from pursuing me.
What a beautiful Father.
This is called Agape love!
You passionately love Jesus, but you don’t really want to be like Him. You admire His humility, but you don’t want to be that humble. You think it’s beautiful that He washed the feet of the disciples, but that’s not exactly the direction your life is headed. You’re thankful He was spit upon and abused, but you would never let that happen to you. You praise Him for loving you enough to suffering during His whole time on earth, but you’re going to do everything within your power to make sure you enjoy your time down here. In short: You think He is a great savior, but not a great role model.
If we don’t teach our children to love Jesus, the world will teach them not to.
