Can a simple concept shift your entire world? Bob Goff certainly thinks so. When it comes to loving your neighbors, instead of focusing on having the “right answers” or checking the “right boxes,” what if you decide to simply do love? To shamelessly show love and grace to those around you—what would that look like? When Love Does, life gets interesting. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.
Love Does is a platform for you to be fully alive, to take risks, and get involved in bringing heaven to earth. Discover the power of just being with someone, and how Jesus is with us, giving us the power of his presence when we need it most. Bob shares how he started the practice of quitting something every Thursday, in order to make space for new things in his life.
Explore the nature of failure, how it works, and what God does with it. Our natural reaction to failure is to cover up who we are by faking it, which Bob experimented with by posing in a wax museum! Learn to see failure as an opportunity for God to change you.
Open parts of your heart that you may have closed off to let in the extravagant love of God. Bob finds parallels with God's audacious love when he helps plan and carry out an over-the-top marriage proposal...for a stranger.
Overcome the fears that paralyze you and keep you from demonstrating your love to others. Bob doesn't let a little thing like fear keep him from pursuing a big adventure. He describes being the navigator for the 2000-mile Transpacific Yacht Race...without knowing how to navigate!
Bring your passions and plans together and explore where the Spirit may be nudging you. Bob's love for people led him to Uganda, where he ended up building a school for 300 students. Bob observes that Jesus became more available later in his ministry, rather than less...so he decided to publish his cell phone number, and answer every call!
