Our needs and wounds can only be a source of our ministry when they have been acknowledged and given appropriate attention. When we would minister to others out of our needs and wounds, we would do harm to them. It is very important for us that we recognize how our needs and wounds can be a great source of our suffering and call us to an ever fuller surrender to God's first love, the love than can fulfill all our needs and heal all our wounds. As long as our needs are raw needs and our wounds are open wounds, we will inflict wounds on others and create needs in others without realizing it."
