Love Me More

My Son Works @ StarbucksImage by Randy Son Of Robert via FlickrSitting at a local coffee shop, I overheard one of the girls who worked there say to herself, "Mommy and Daddy are gonna love me even more now."  She had just finished grinding a pound of coffee and was closing up the bag, presumably to give to her parents.

It struck me as she said it, that I can remember thinking the very same thing about my parents at some time.  It seems we all seek for love and approval. . .from a parent, a spouse, a sibling, a boss.  What machinations we will go through to receive that recognition that we "are loved".

There is one thing we can know, however, and that is we don't have to do anything to be loved by God.   In fact,  "We love Him, because He first loved us." (1John 4:19).  He loves us no matter what our state. "But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,"(Ephesians 2:4,5).

What a wonder that the God of the Universe would love us, would love me!  What a miracle, what a comfort, what a joy divine!
