Challenging Word

Here's a Challenging Word from Joy Dawson in her book Intimate Friendship With God:

"So often our repentance is needed in our relationships with others. We are only as close to the Lord as we are close to the person we love the least."

This insight is based off of the following scripture from 1 John 4:20-21: "If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whome he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also."

Wow. Help me, Lord!


  1. I repent the fact that I don't talk to you nearly enough as I should!

  2. hah Tim, somehow I never saw this comment until now. Yes, I wish we talked more too!
