“Love in its highest form is.. giving someone that which eternally satisfies; that is, God Himself.” ~ John Piper, The Blazing Center
Taken from a video series that I highly recommend, the quote above expresses much of what I’ve been thinking and pondering this week. What would it be like if I loved as He loves? If my thoughts and actions toward those around me were motivated by a desire to offer them eternal joy, rather than a moment of satisfaction? I fear that all too often my thoughts of someone else’s well-being extend no further than that very moment. O, to live- to love– with perspective!
