as we travel on the narrow path, ministry is the art of opening our hearts up wide. our world is on a path wide enough for narrow hearts - we need to pioneer a trail unashamed and unafraid of a heart unveiled. too often we focus on the wounds inflicted by those we give our love to; rather than on the wounds already possessed by them. we fall prey to the selfish love the narrow heart.
"father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." luke 23:34
"we have spoken freely to you, corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. we are not withholding our affections from you, but you are witholding yours from us. as a fair exchange - i speak as to my children - open wide your hearts also." 2 cor. 6:11-13
father, forgive us, for we do not know what we are doing.
