Failing At Love Is Better Than Succeeding At Pride

A dear prayer warrior in my church recently shared this quote with me. It describes the lean of my heart and I hope it resonates with you. It comes from Eugene Peterson's book "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction."I decide, every day, to set aside what I can do best and attempt what I do very clumsily--open myself to the frustrations and failures of loving, daring to believe that failing in love is better than succeeding in pride. --Eugene PetersonI'm going to try to love today even if I do it clumsily.
