This week, Upper Room Daily Reflections features excerpts from Loving the World with God: Fourth Day Living by Rebecca Bruff.
AS WE BECOME more and more faithful about loving the world with God, we won’t need to tell stories. At the end of the day, if we’ve nurtured relationships and honored, protected, loved, and given our best to make a difference, the stories will tell themselves. The rocks and stones will cry out. Neighborhoods will look different. Jail census will look different. Disease statistics will look different. People’s lives will look different.
