Leave Her Alone

Apr 07, 2019   ·     •   John 12:1-8

I’ve been thinking about my dad and about other men whom I have encountered in my life who have supported me, and I hope that other women also think of those men in their lives… men who are willing to let women shine without jealousy or possessiveness, men who truly appreciate women as fellow human beings.

Imaging living your whole life in darkness, in the abyss, in the emptiness. How incredible, how amazing, how impossible would even the tiniest flickering light be? More

I wonder…

Listen to what Jesus has to say about children. This is from the tenth chapter of the Gospel according to Mark: “it is to [children] that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it. What does it mean to “receive the kingdom of God as a little child”? And what does it mean that the kingdom of God belongs to children? And what does it mean that God approaches us as a child? More
