“To be deeply loved, means a willingness to cut yourself wide open, exposing your vulnerabilities. . . hopes, hurts, fears and flaws. Hiding behind the highlight reel of who you are, is the real you, and that person is just as worthy of love.”
“I love you sounds best spoken in quiet acts of kindness.”
“We love because God first loved us.”
-I John 4:19
What does emotionally healthy love look like? Is our cultural definition of love a good one? How about your own definition? Where does God’s love for us fit into how we feel love and provide love for others? We’ll talk about these things more on Sunday.
