Loving Too Much

"I guess I just love them too much." This is the cry of the enabler, the co-dependent. And actually, it is completely false. It's a LIE.

Definition of Love-- seeking the others highest good and purpose.

So you avoid confronting your adult son, who is using drugs, living in your house because you "love him too much?" That really smells. Seeking the others highest good sometimes isn't goose-bumpy. Sometimes it isn't comfortable. Sometimes it just doesn't feel good. But if you truly Love, you'll walk through what you have to walk through.

  1. Amen, Daniel! If only more people understood this. So many lives are broken and wasted because of this one thing. Praise God that he loves us enough to discipline us!
