A skinny young stray showed up one day.
Having no qualities to make him a worthy addition to our office staff, we chose to take him in, give him a name and a place. His security and significance comes not from what he was or from what he does, but from the simple fact that we have made him an object of our love. Jack is safe and secure because he is loved.
I can’t earn God’s love…He simply chooses to love me. His love alone gives me worth, significance, and security. I am grateful.
“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His son to be the propitiation for our sins.” I John 4:10
