Love the Sacrifice

"Love can only be what communion is — a pouring out, a breaking open and a passing around, a sacrifice.
And if love is what makes itself into a roof around a heart to absorbs all the storms, love is the only real dwelling place, and communion with another is all we have to offer and it’s all we have to crawl up under. When I don’t live love, others live homeless. When I don’t love like Christ, I evict souls.
Christ is love embodied and no matter where we are, He and His body are Home."
 - Ann Voskamp, A Holy Experience blog

Did that reach out and smite your heart as it did mine? Or am I the only one who needed a reminder of love?
"When I don't live love, others live homeless. When I don't love like Christ, I evict souls." Oh me, oh my. Dear Lord, please, may I never evict souls or leave any homeless.
