Letting ourselves be loved

Instead of our self-conscious efforts to be good, we should allow ourselves the luxury of letting ourselves be loved, not after we clean up our act and get all our ducks in a row, not after we have eliminated every trace of sin, selfishness, dishonesty, and degraded love from our resume, not after we have developed a disciplined prayer life and spent ten years in Calcutta with Mother Teresa’s missionaries, but right now, right here . . .
