Selfless Openness

By Caitlin Pifer
Podcast Episode

Jon, Paul and Liz continue their conversations on how Jesus' love is shaped by his dependence on his Father.

"Selfless openness is a willingness to let other people intrude into your life. If there's any form of love that our modern culture is allergic to, it's this one. Particularly as wealth grows, your time becomes your most valuable asset. So when someone intrudes into your life, you're giving them your best gift—and they don't even know it, which is doubly irritating!"

"Jesus loves to love. Sometimes I love to love, but sometimes I love because I should love."

"Our faith functions like a gentle intrusion of us to Jesus. We have a reticence to do that with important people, but Jesus loves it when we bring our needs to him."
