Read an Excerpt From "Honestly"

That's exactly how it is with God. God loves us before we come to him. Think of King David, the author of a ton of the psalms, who wrote a praise song (Psalm 139) about how God knew him and loved him while he was still in his mother's womb. Or think about how Jesus, along with God the Father and God the Spirit, set in motion the rescue plan for humanity before you or I even existed.

See what's going on?

Love comes from God. When we love each other, we're showing each other that we've had a taste of what God is like. And when we love each other preemptively, we're giving the world—strangers, neighbors, enemies, and absolutely everybody—a picture of God.

Here's what we're chasing. Love is meant to be experienced. Love Supreme is not just an idea or a concept. It's real, it's lived, it stirs our emotions. It makes us lose our minds sometimes for those we love, because our hearts are so full.

Look, it doesn't matter who is coming over for dinner. Family, friends, strangers. . .even enemies. What matters is that we cook with love, ahead of time, just in case, because that's the way to honestly taste a Love Supreme.
