Brody Bond creates a thoughtful purity in this bouncy, rootsy rock song. Love for our children can teach us a lot about love of all kinds, and Brody identifies this for us here.
Love is not what I thought it was. It was a revelation when I realized ‘I’m not afraid of my kids.’ They are not a threat to me. I don’t need anything from them. Therefore, I can love them well. And they can love me well, too, because they know they can act and speak freely without it being any sort of threat to me. This is in such contrast to how I tried to give and receive love in some other relationships… only to be always so afraid and manipulatable. A relationship of real love feels like freedom. It’s not obligation. It’s not full of expectations. There’s no threat of resentment. Real love casts out fear. — Brody Bond
