Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.
Our “supersize me” world conditions BusyCoaches (and all of us) to believe that bigger is better. Transfer this mentality to relationships and we might think that only the extraordinary display of love will get noticed or even matter.
Not so. When it comes to love, your players don’t long for extraordinary as much as consistent. They crave unfailing love that isn’t based on performance. How can BusyCoaches be a conduit of this kind of love?
In my experience, humans cannot love this way without first receiving the gift of God’s unending love. Experiencing God’s love and forgiveness gives us the capacity to love others without getting tired—truly the greatest gift you can give your players.
This Christmas, may you experience God’s most amazing gift of love made known to us through his son, Jesus.
