“Jesus was always talking about a reverse economy. He talked about how if you want to receive, you give. If you want to lead, you follow. That the poor are rich and you only really live for certain things if you are willing to die to them.” – Bob Goff, Love Does

God’s way is backwards from so much of what we see. His way is rooted in trust. Our way is rooted in doubt.

Love cannot to be held onto, it exists to be given away. It seems backwards to us, how can I get what I so desperately need by giving it away? God’s ways are “higher” than ours. The love we so urgently need, can only come from Him and when we allow God to provide it for us, we are no longer desperate to get it from others. The fear we mentioned yesterday disappears and we are free to give love away.
