I may give away everything I have, and I may even give my body as an offering to be burned. But I gain nothing if I do not have love. ~1 Corinthians 13:3~

My Dear Child,

>I'm not calling you to be a Christian daredevil, putting on a big show of holy stunts. I'm not expecting you to put on a spiritual sideshow for this thrill-seeking world. What I want to see in you in the quiet, inner conversion of your heart that will turn you from a self-seeker into a God-seeker, from a self-lover into an other-lover.

The conversion of your heart won't make headlines. But, believe me, it will be a miracle that will revolutionize your whole life. And once your heart has been turned out by love, you'll find yourself doing great things without even caring about the attention they bring.

The Heart-changer,

>God
