Love Every Day

Tim Keller has said that our sinfulness is far worse than we ever could imagine, and that God’s love is far more than we ever dared hope. And Christians for millennia have affirmed no better way to learn these truths – and many others besides – than to love God with all our heart and soul and mind and strength. This daily devotional on the Great Commandment helps us do just that. By love we discover the depths and the heights at the same time. And a’course there’s that loving God part, as well. Which is pretty good all by itself.
