Do You Love The Idea Or The Person?


“…it is not uncommon to love the idea that you love people and are their benefactor rather than to actually love people themselves…. Love for people, or the lack of it, reveals the quality and effectiveness of the philosophy we hold. And from a Biblical perspective our love for people is even more revealing, because it actually indicates the authenticity and health of our relationship with God.” (emphasis mine)
