The difference between "talking about" and "being"

Oh, this is so, so, so true:

Sure, people need Jesus, but most of the time, what they really need is for someone to be Jesus to them.

  1. Great wisdom Ellie...and isn't that what Jesus asked us to do for each other?

  2. I was always very good at being on the giving end of grace, but when I lost my job and needed to be on the recieving end, I discovered just how hard that was. My faith community was very giving and supportive, but it can be very difficult when, suddenly, the tables are turned.
