Love with Insight

Beth (Moore) said some very profound things that touched me deeply during our "Loving Well" retreat.

One thing that she said made me pause and consider. "God never said for us to love blindly." Interesting. She then pointed us to Philippians 1:9.

"And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more with knowledge and all discernment".

The world tells us that love is blind. God tells us to be wise and love with discernment.

Oh, if only, if only.....

I wonder sometimes how my life would be different, had I learned many of these truths when I was younger.... Different, it would be.... Better? I don't know.

Life is good. My struggles and mistakes have brought me to this place.

But, from here, I get to choose differently. I get to listen to the Gentle Voice Within. With any luck, I will follow....

May I be wise and love with discernment.
