I really love my kids. I mean, really. I love them so much. I want to do whatever I can for them, I want to help them, I want to protect them, I want to keep them safe.
That’s how I feel about my children.
And that’s how any parent would feel about their kids. They want to protect them, be there for them, give them what they need and, if we are going to be honest, a lot of what they want.
That’s how every parent feels.
Listen to what Jesus says in Matthew 7:9-11:
Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
And I love what Jesus says, if we who are sinful (or evil) know how do this, how much more does our perfect, loving, heavenly Father know how to do it.
You who are parents, you know how much you love your kids. You know how, even when you are frustrated and angry with them, how much you love them.
That love is a 1/100th of the love that our Heavenly Father has for us. It doesn’t even measure. As much as we love our kids, God loves us even more.
For our love is imperfect. His is perfect.
You are loved. More than you’ll ever know. Ever understand. More than you can imagine.
Today, as a Father loves His children, so does our God love us. Today know how much God loves us!
