a bullet-proof shield

Have you ever found a book in a sale and grabbed it because it was cheap and you liked the cover or the title? I did that this week when I picked up the book "Sub-merge...living deep in a shallow world" by john b.hayes

Since I had time to kill because of a delayed flight I started to read and have had trouble putting it down since.

I wanted to just share a paragraph that caught my attention a few moments ago

"Finally, incarnational ministry acts as a message of love and grace to the mission workers themselves that it is okay to be human. In living among the poor, we cannot help but lower the bullet-proof shield that separates the professional service provider from the poor. Consequently, we open ourselves up to good news from the poor."

Lord, help me to lower the bullet-proof shield and learn about love and grace.
