Emptying Our Lives Into The Lives Of Others

April 1, 2015

“Godly character requires knowing God firsthand. The route to knowing God eventually passes directly through the valley of profound loneliness. It is in the times when there is no one but God that we learn to know Him most fully. Those times – those moments of utter aloneness – come only from emptying our lives into the lives of others.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Encouragement, Page 69

Questions for Reflection:
• Take a moment to consider recent relational interactions.
• In what ways do you see yourself grasping for others to fill your emptiness?
• How might God be giving you an opportunity in your own loneliness to know Him more deeply by revealing His heart to others?
