Love Does
by Teresa Jackson on July 1st, 2020

Bob Goff is one of my all-time favorite authors. He can tell a story so well that you think you were present when it happened. The foundational message for every book he has written is love and hope. His popular books include Love Does, Everybody Always, and now, Dream Big. I dare you to read one of these books and not walk away a better person. In a world filled with so much pain, a world in need of healing from a longstanding racial divide, I want to recommend Everybody Always. This book was not written specifically to address racism, but it will bring balm to your soul as you seek ways to heal and give love to those hurting among us.

"People who are becoming love keep it real about who they are right now, while living in constant anticipation about who God's helping them become." -- Bob Goff, Everybody Always

Don’t you just love that?  

I must confess that I am definitely a work in progress. Honestly, I thought that--by this time in my life--I would be further down the path to becoming love. Who knew life would be so challenging? So, keeping it real, you should know that I have more work to do to become more like Jesus. I see my flaws and admit I don’t always know how to fix them.

Fortunately, God sees me as I am and, through His grace, is helping me to become love so I can genuinely share that love with everybody always. Everybody. Always.
And to that I say Amen.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28, ESV)
