Not simply an inspiring idea

The wild, unrestricted love of God is not simply an inspiring idea.

When it imposes itself on mind and heart with the stark reality of ontological truth, it determines why and at what time you get up in the morning, how you pass your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, and who you hang with;

it affects what breaks your heart, what amazes you, and what makes your heart happy.
