Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.

 

It takes work to break walls down. Hard work. It’s sweat. It’s grit. It’s tears. It’s pain. It’s ugly.

Do we care that much?

To purposely put ourselves out on the limb and risk our lives and time and reputation for another? To go beyond our heart to fight for another’s heart? To care so much that it hurts? Gut wrenching hurt?

That’s grit love.

The kind of crazy love that Jesus has for us.

I want that kind of love.

Oh, I do.

God help me.
