Chapter 14: A New Kind of Diet (pg 94)
Quotes of the Day:
“None of us want to make God look bad. But in the end, being fake makes God look worse. It makes people think He tastes like Crisco.”
“People don’t want to be told that their experiences were wrong or that their wrapper or someone else’s wrapper is made of the wrong stuff. Instead, we get to be the ones to show them real love from a real God.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 98
2 Timothy 3:1-5
3 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
Putting Love into Action:
Be the real thing. Watch out when God brings someone into your life that has been head-faked. Simply take the opportunity to show that God is full of love. Win them over with real love from a real God. Don’t be Crisco!
Has there been someone in your life that showed up as the real thing when you needed it the most? Who helped you see real love from a real God?
