It's a Big Idea:Live the Love Paradox!
This is a Story About Serving & Your Well-Being is the Point!
Welcome to invitations designed to transform you from inside out through education and inspiration.
Your well-being is the point – not as an end in itself, but rather because it directly influences your desire and ability to serve others. Whether it is leading your family on a rafting trip or leading a corporate team on a visioning experience, your well-being will directly influence how well you navigate the waters of the wilderness or how well you swim with the corporate sharks. Do you really want to navigate troubled waters with someone who hates him or herself? I think not!
Here's a paradox for you: serving others is enhanced by your well-being!
The hard work of love is the point!
If someone is attempting to convince you loving is easy, they're probably trying to sell you something! Don't buy it. Don't buy in.
Doing the hard work of love either becomes a part of you or something you learn to avoid depending on how you love and value your self. If you are self-centered, selfishness forms a vacuum that is difficult or impossible to fill. Everyone loses. If you don’t take care of your self, destructive patterns can set in that harm everyone involved. Again, everyone loses. Perhaps you've heard stories of people literally working themselves to death!
A personal sense of being loved and valued can difficult to sustain. In the best relationships love is expressed in ways that fluctuate. In the worst relationships issues like divorce, abuse or violence, (or all three) can devastate a personal sense of value. It's hard to feel valued by God or anyone when someone is abusing you. It is because of this difficulty in sustaining a feeling of being valued the Christian message about the unconditional love of Jesus is so vital. He supplies a consistent love and value not available anywhere else, from anyone else.
The love of God expressed in Jesus is the point!
This unreasonable love of God keeps you in a firm embrace that elevates your value.
This serves to strengthen a healthy sense of well-being – even under adverse circumstances. This love provides confidence and freedom to pursue life with vigor and enthusiasm. The love of God expressed in Jesus stabilizes life from the day-in-day-out typical fluctuations of healthy relationships. It brings hope and renewal to those devastated by harmful relationships.
