Ego in Invitation
Alain Botton says “Our ego or self-conception could be pictured as a leaking balloon, forever requiring the helium of external love to remain inflated and vulnerable to the smallest pinpricks of neglect. Our sense of identity is held captive by the judgements of those we live among. We are afflicted by a congenital uncertainty as to our own value.” But God so loved the world that he sent his son for us. Yet another reason to invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
