Bob Goff is an incredible speaker and author of books: Love Does, Love Does for Kids and Everybody Always. He is a husband and father, and one of his many passions is building schools all around the world.
We discuss the different books that Bob has written and his particular focus on love in these books, for both adults and younger people. He gives such great insight on how we need to engage the very people that are the hardest for us to love through knowing what true love is: sacrifice and commitment.
We model love for the unloved by how Jesus first loved us. He also focuses on what true love instead of what the world tells us it is. We need to simplify and bring the main focus back on the Lord. Bob talks about loud voices versus true voices and discerning what we are going to listen to in our lives.
Bob has such wisdom on what is truly meaningful in our life. We need to prioritize what is most important and learning that it is ok to fail while trying rather than fail by watching. There is so much growth in the failure of trying.
We talk deeply about marriage and how to make your marriage such an important aspect of your life. You need to show up to make an impact. Sometimes we confuse oneness with sameness because although we are one, our spouse can be so different than us.
“God isn’t dazzled when we go across the ocean. He’s amazed when we walk across the street.” I am reminded to engage with those that are around us and be intentional with others, and the love of Jesus will radiate from you.
