Love does

In den letzten Tagen habe ich “Love does” von Bob Goff gelesen und bin mehr als nur begeistert.
Christian hatte es mir schon vor längerer Zeit empfohlen und seitdem lag es bei mir rum und wartete darauf gelesen zu werden.
Jetzt, nachdem ich endlich dazu kam kann ich sagen, dass es eines der besten und inspirierendsten Bücher war, die ich je gelesen habe.

Bob Goff schreibt vor jedes Kapitel ein kleines Zitat nach dem Motto “Früher … aber heute …”.
Zum Weiterdenken, Provozieren und als kleinen Teaser habe ich die meiner Meinung nach besten dieser Zitate rausgepickt:

I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.


I used to think the words spoken about us describe who we are, but now I know they shape who we are.


I used to think religion tasted horrible, but now I know I was eating the fake stuff.


I used to think I had missed the mark and God was mad about it, but now I know “missing the mark” is a stupid analogy.


I use to think life could be shared with anyone, but now I know choosing the right people is pretty important.


I used to think knowing God was like going on a business trip with Him, but now I know He’s inviting me on an adventure instead.


I used to think God wouldn’t talk to me, but now I know I’m just selective with what I choose to hear.


I used to be afraid that if I was authentic I might take a hit, but now I know that being real means I will take a hit.


I used to think I should talk about everything, but now I know it’s better to keep some things a secret.


I used to think I could learn about Jesus by studying Him, but now I know Jesus doesn’t want stalkers.


I used to think that taking a risk would reduce the number of friends I have, but now I know that love draws more people in.
