‘There’s nothing you can do to make God love you more; and there’s nothing you can do to make God love you less. All you can do is nurture your True Self, which is saying quite a lot. It is love becoming love in this unique form called “me.”‘ – Richard Rohr
As I was reading and reflecting upon this quote from Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation (1/7/16), I thought that I would share it with my readers. It is so true to realize that everything comes first and foremost from God. It is God’s love for all that has been created that sustains and nurtures.
God does not abandon us once we are created. In fact, if God were to somehow forget us, we would no longer exist. Our task, if you will, is simply to be open to the love of God that surrounds, nurtures, and fills the core of who we are.
