To be fully known and truly loved is the longing of every human heart - we’re born with this desire and we look for it constantly. It’s the love our God has for us, His sons and daughters. He knows us better than we will ever know ourselves and He loves us unconditionally, pouring out grace and mercy on our mistakes. His love for us is perfect, shalom, complete.
Our love for one another is imperfect, even if it’s the very best we can give, our humanity is always part of the equation. We must forgive and accept forgiveness for selfishness or insensitivity... and move on. Forgiveness is the key to loving others, especially when you really know them and can see all their flaws up close and personal. This is the same thing that we fear when we let them get close to us, don’t let the fear of being known keep you from love - but don’t let the longing for this love lead you to accept poor imitations either. #fullyknownandfullyloved @timkellernyc #goodgoodfather #childofgod #theywillknowusbyourlove #shalom #dailydevotional
