Questions from Henri Nouwen

Nouwen is one of my favorite authors. He wrote from his personal experience and his transparency ministered to thousands of people.

I recently read a few questions he posed in one of his books:

  1. Did I offer peace today?
  2. Did I say words of healing?
  3. Did I let go of my anger and resentment?
  4. Did I forgive?
  5. Did I love?

In the midst of life, Nouwen said, “These are the real questions.”

Today, I am going to ponder these 5 simple yet profound questions. I hope you might too.
