The Love I Have Planted In Your Heart Can Never Be Destroyed

September 24, 2014

“You will be irresistibly drawn to My love and able to give it to others when you discover in your own experience that the love I have planted in your heart can never be destroyed by rejection, betrayal, criticism, or any other form of unlove you receive.  True love reveals itself as the strongest of all passions when your impulse to hate those who hurt you is fully felt….When I told Hosea to bring back to his home the woman who had thrown the sharpest daggers into his heart, he caught sight of the kind of love I pour out on My adulterous people.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 141

Questions for Reflection:

• Can you remember a time when, in the midst of pain and anger over another’s sin, you also experienced a deep desire for their redemption?
• What brought about the shift in your perspective?
