The other day I said something about being “Opened to Experience.”
I’ve thought a lot about that in the days that followed. There is so much truth in the idea that our experiences help to shape us, they teach us things about ourselves, and experiences are a part of the way we understand God.
Not only do we just experience things in our day to day, but there is something to be said about putting ourselves in positions to experience.
I’ve spent years trying to help people understand God’s love, and I have come to realize that experience is the best teacher, and it is in part my responsibility (as it is all followers of Jesus) it is our responsibility to help people discover – sometimes through their experiences – the loving nature of Jesus.
So it becomes important to be “Opened to Experience”, and allow those experiences to help teach us and guide us into a relationship with God.
