How Do You Approach Jesus?

  • John 11:55-57
  • John 12:1-2
  • Luke 10:38-42
  • Colossians 3:23-24

“When I give something I do not possess, I give a false and dangerous gift, a gift
that looks like love but is, in reality, loveless — a gift given more from my need to prove myself than from the other’s need to be cared for. One sign that I am
violating my own nature in the name of nobility is a condition called burnout.
Though usually regarded as the result of trying to give too much, burnout in my experience results from trying to give what I do not possess — the ultimate in giving too little! Burnout is a state of emptiness, to be sure, but it does not result from giving all I have; it merely reveals the nothingness from which I was trying to give in the first place.”
