The Need For Love
keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
A husband and wife visited an orphanage where they hoped to adopt a child. In an interview with the boy they wanted, they told him in glowing terms about the many things they could give him. To their amazement, the little fellow said, “If you have nothing to offer except a good home, clothes, toys, and the other things that most children have, then, I would sooner stay here.” “What on earth could you want besides those things?” the woman asked. “I just want someone to love me,” replied the little boy. There you have it! Even a little boy knows that “man shall not live by bread alone” (Matthew 4:4). Our deeper yearnings and longings can be met only by a renewed fellowship with the One in whose image we were created, God, and He loves us so much, that He gave the Gift of His own Son, Jesus Christ.
We all have a need to be loved, and there is no greater love than the love of God.
Thank You for loving me, God. This knowledge never ceases to amaze me. I love and praise You, my heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirt. Amen.
