Give Up Trying to Earn Love from God — A Quote by Brennan Manning in “The Ragamuffin Gospel”

“How difficult it is to be honest, to accept that I am unacceptable, to renounce self-justification, to give up the pretense that my prayers, spiritual insight, tithing, and successes in ministry have made me pleasing to God! No antecedent beauty enamors me in His eyes. I am lovable only because He loves me.”

–Brennan Manning, “The Ragamuffin Gospel”, p. 83
