How real love really works

Artist: Paula Modersohn-Becker

I've deeply appreciated the following ever since I first came across it some time ago:

Don't tell me you will love me forever. Tell me that you will love me Thursday afternoon at four o'clock.

W. H. Auden

This is what incarnational faith is all about. It's not abstract (or it's not merely abstract). Following Christ means cultivating the kind of love that manifests itself in the very real lives of very real people.
