Love = Growing The Good Things

Love = Growing The Good Things

“To love something is to see in it the hope of the promise that are in it, which our cynical, tired selves cannot see but which by God’s grace we can see…

“So when God in the Bible tells us that we are to love our enemies, he is not telling us to love what is evil, or to love the evil in our enemies.  He is telling us to love what is beyond that, to love the goodness in them that he sees and that he put there.  He is telling us that if we love that good thing, it will grow.”

If You Can Keep It:  The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, Eric Metaxas (231)
