Love

The question confronted me again this weekend: “What’s your book about?”

I’ve stumbled over a number of minimally-satisfying answers, but Valentine’s Day prompts me to try a new approach. Relentless Grace is about LOVE.

It’s actually quite a romantic love story about two souls seperated for much too long, but that’s not the core of the message. I hope that the book inspires readers to believe in the life-changing power of self-sacrificial love.                       

When we express unconditional love, it’s like tossing a pebble into a pond. The splash prompts a series of ripples that alter the entire surface of the water. Every act of love, no matter how small or apparently inconsequential, radiates from its source and transforms everyone it touches.Please leave a comment, visit my website, and/or send me an email at rich@richdixon.net

We may not understand the final impact, much as the characters of Relentless Grace didn’t always perceive their ultimate role. Often it seems that our acts of kindness and sacrifice don’t really matter.

In our immediate-gratification culture, we want an answer, and we want it NOW. But the belief that we can know, and control, the outcome is an illusion. The ultimate result frequently remains a mystery. 

“Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)

We’re not all in positions of power, but each of us has within us the power to change the world.

Question: Do you get discouraged when your efforts don’t appear to make a difference?
