Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that. (The Message)
This is part of the passage I’m preaching from on Sunday in the Big Room. I love the rendering of this passage in the Message because of the reminder that God’s love is not cautious but extravagant. It makes me wonder if I love anyone in my life extravagantly. What does that look like?
Here’s to extravagance.
