Creating God Space Revisited

I’m realizing that creating God space where God things can happen is current.

Becoming a friendly opened hearted person is the first step into the equation. I’ve noticed that people who are open hearted, have a spirit that is different than the norm.

Open hearted people are attractive. Usually an open hearted person is more other focused than self focused and tend to have a more positive outlook in life. In a class setting I ask, ‘What does friendly look like?’

Some answers:
Open faced
Makes eye connection


Willing to listen

Doesn’t pass judgement


Genuinly caring

Has a sense of humor
Good attitudes
Believes the best

Not negative

Fun to be around

I think being a friendly open hearted person is a doable practice. I often wonder what would happen if every follower of Jesus would seek to be a friendly open hearted person every day? How many conversations would be started? How many acts of kindness would be generated? How many hearts would open?
