I recently finished this remarkable little book, and highlighted many quotes I read so that I could go back to them and digest them further. This was one that really spoke to me. The moment I read it in the book, I went back and read it again. When we choose to act from a place of love, and not of fear, that is God.
We insist that people believe as we believe to be a part of our group. We do all we can to protect our survival. We pass judgment, we exclude people as unworthy. Love frees us to give ourselves away. What would happen if we really could be so open, so free, so whole, and so loving.... might we actually see The Kingdom of God on earth?
