Lead With Love

Love

“When we lead with our judgments, we can’t see correctly. When we lead with our fears, we can’t see correctly. That doesn’t mean at a later time there isn’t an appropriate point for a cautionary response or judgments, but we can’t lead with them. If we lead with the calculating mind, we’ll never get to love. We’ll cut down and close down too quickly. The heart is unable to remain open, and we will not see God. As John of the Cross insists, God refuses to be known except by love.”

~ Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs
