CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last week I had the privilege to spend four days with family and good friends in Elkmont. It was a sweet time of disconnecting from phone/internet/tv/etc (no service out there!) and intentionally connecting person to person with others. We can’t always take four days, but I encourage you to try one hour a day in the evening, intentionally disconnecting from distractions and connecting with your family.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Shared article about a counselor from a Nursing home who shared what people at the latter part of their lives longed to go back and do.  What do they regret, if anything?  Almost all responded that they would go back to the time in their lives when they’re kids were home.  When life was crazy and uncertain.  Chaotic.  We always seem to be thinking about the next thing.  It is a challenge to stop and realize we are in a special spot in our lives.  To be present and in the moment.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Crucifixion Love is the love that Christ showed us. He loved us even though we didn’t deserve it. His Love for us was not predicated on us first loving Him.

Reciprocation Love is loving someone because they’ve first loved us or loving someone with an expectation of something in return. Examples: 1) I’m going to unload the dishwasher so that my wife will notice and that will hopefully lead to sex later on tonight. 2) I’m going to help out with the kids this morning so that my wife will let me go golfing next weekend (and if she says ‘no’, I’ll remind her of how helpful I was with the kids the other day). 3) Or maybe it’s simply that you’re hanging out with someone or being friendly towards them because you’re expecting something in return – you hope to close a business deal, be seen in a certain crowd, you want them to approve of you, etc….

Although we’ll constantly fall short of it in our fleshly bodies, we are called to love others with crucifixion love. Love others even when they don’t deserve it. Love others with no expectation of anything in return.
