He Loves Me

Everyone seems to love Charlie Brown, the hero of the comic strip “Peanuts.” One day he and Lucy were strolling along when she stopped and picked up a daisy and began to pluck the petals one by one, saying, “He loves me, he loves me not. He loves me, he loves me not.” Plucking the last petal she said, “He loves me! Charlie Brown, you love me!”

“Well,” he said, “I could have told you that.”

Sadly she asked, “But why didn’t you?”

We often neglect to tell those whom we love that we do indeed love them – that they are important to us, that we care for them deeply and that they mean as much to us as life itself. It is important that we speak and share our love with others as God has shared His love with us. And if the love of God is in our hearts, then the love of God will be seen in our lives.

Prayer: We pray, Lord, that our hearts may be so filled with Your love that we will gladly and happily share it with others. We pray that we will demonstrate Your love through our lives and that others will see Jesus in us and through us. We ask this in Thy wonderful name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: 1 John 4:8
