Lies We Believe About God (26)

Summary of Chapter 26
The 26th 'lie' is that 'God loves me for my potential'. Talk of potential piles on pressure. Potential is impossible to reach because it's a moving target. God doesn't love us because of our potential. God loves us now... as we are!

I think Young makes a good and simple point here. I would only add that just because God loves us as we are, that does not mean He doesn't (in His love) help us reach our potential. Or, to eliminate the double-negative, God loves us in a way that grows us... enabling us to become the best version of us possible. Just a little more nuance... no objections here.
