I’m re-reading through the New Testament and today I read from Matthew 24– wars, rumors of wars, nation against nation, famine, earthquakes– and it’s kind of felt familiar for a while, hasn’t it? And yet these are the beginning of birth pains.
What struck me was verse 12: “And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.”
Please, God, don’t let my love grow cold.
I am so grateful to be surrounded by the best friends in the world, friends whose love is scorching in the best way, friends on fire for love and justice and mercy and grace and faithfulness, no matter the cost.
Thank you, friends. Thank you for keeping me from letting my love grow cold.
