I just read this quote from C.S. Lewis for the first time this morning. I thought it was awesome and convicting! This is just a short post, but I wanted to share it. :)
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. – C. S. Lewis
Go and really love someone deeply today. Take the risk. God commands it and out of love for Him, we should be obedient.
