Genuine, loving interaction with people created in the image of God is pretty important in the day in which we live. There is a lot of complaining and a great lack of compassion in our world. The psalmist asks, “Who will show us any good?” The response comes back: “LORD lift up the light of Your countenance upon us” (Psalm 4:6). I’m burdened that people know that the relationship I have with the LORD drives me. It doesn’t make me happy to pretend to have a transformed, confident life! But how wonderful it is when His lovingkindness is actually better than life (Psalm 63:3)!
