I’d Like You More if You Were More like Me takes on one of life’s most important questions: How can I get closer to God and other people?
were created for deep connections. When people have deep connections,
says John Ortberg, they win in life. When they don’t have deep
connections, they cannot win in life. I’d Like You More if You Were More like Me
offers help in overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to making deep
connections: the fact that we’re so different. Different from God and
different from each other.
The good news is that connectedness is
not based on similarity, but on shared experiences. When one person
invites another to share an experience, they’re connected. It can be
sharing a beautiful sunset or a meal, having a great conversation over
cup of coffee, going for walk, or even teasing somebody. And when we
share those same experiences with God, we get closer to him, too. God
wants to connect with us—so much that he sent his son to live as a human
being. God took on flesh and shared every human experience. So we don’t
have to wonder what a close relationship with God looks like anymore.
An intimate relationship with God and other people doesn’t have to be a cliché, it can be a daily way of life.
