Entitlement Or Truth?

April 6, 2016

“Live for your relational comfort, and your joy will be shallow and temporary.  It will not free you to love.  Live to know the truth of My story of forgiving love, and you will be deeply unsettled by how profoundly you need forgiveness.  You will then suffer the slow death of your entitled demand that you be treated well.  But you will discover, slowly but surely, the power of My ongoing forgiveness and Presence to change you into a person who loves.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 252

Questions for Reflection:
• Take some time to consider what “your entitled demand that you be treated well” has cost your relationships with God and others.
• What desires for change are awakened in you as you ponder the intersection of God’s forgiving love and the impact of your own selfishness?
• Confess to God your need for grace and ask Him to guide you into a deeper intimacy with Himself.
