The Wisdom of Advent – Learning to Wait
Week 2: Love.
Bonhoeffer offers this insight on God loving our humanity, “God becomes human, really human. While we endeavor to grow out of our humanity, to leave our human nature behind us, God becomes human, and we must recognize that God wants us also to become human – really human. …Out of love for human beings, God becomes a human being. He does not seek out the most perfect human being in order to unite with that person. Rather he takes on human nature as it is.”1
- Is there anything keeping you from feeling that God loves you, just as you are in this moment?
