God Running is a place for anyone who wants to (or even anyone who wants to want to) love Jesus more deeply, follow Jesus more closely, and love people the way Jesus wants us to.
The more you give genuine forgiveness, grace, and mercy, the more peace and joy you’ll receive.

Hi Kurt, Can you find a Bible verse that is supportive of the
truth in your statement? I’m sure there are many verses that do support that truth. Otherwise, I might be tempted to quote the lyrics from a Beatles song.
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” Taken from The End by The Beatles, Abbey Road (2019 Mix). But the mathematical relationship in your graph is more parabolic than linear. (My Engineer is showing).
Hahaha! Your comment made me smile Jeffrey! I’m traveling right at the moment but when I get a minute I’ll find a Bible verse. Meanwhile, it occurs to me this might be why Jesus emphasized forgiveness so much. Seems obvious he wants us to experience his peace and he said he taught us so we could have joy and live an abundant life. (John 15:11) Thanks for your comment Jeffrey!
So True and so Simple….
Yeah, if you think it through, so much of our angst, maybe most of it, goes away if we can just forgive and extend grace. Thanks for your comment Rob!
