Battle For A Better Love

October 12, 2016

“When we realize that the joy of advancing the purpose of God, of bringing God’s relational kingdom of love into our community by putting Jesus-like love on display, even to those who hurt us deeply, is in fact first thing happiness, we will then be in position to battle for a better love.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 244

Questions for Reflection:
• Think of someone with whom you’ve had a recent conflict.
• When you consider God’s purposes, does His desire for His children to experience joy come to mind?
• How does the challenge of asking for forgiveness where needed, forgiving, and actively seeking the other person’s well-being change when seen as an opportunity to advance God’s purpose, which includes our joy?
