Something to Think About
The Christian way is to risk the attachments of love—and then keep growing in love. All of life is a lesson in learning to love more deeply and truly.
As we start trying to love, we begin to realize that we’re actually not loving very well.
We are mostly meeting our own needs. The word for this is “codependency.”
This kind of love is still impure and self-seeking and thus is not really love at all.
So, we have to pull back and learn the great art of detachment, which is not aloofness but the purifying of attachment.
