Love Hugs

Four-year-old Mary liked the story, “The Three Little Pigs.” She begged her father to read it to her every night.

One day he taped the story and when she asked him to read it to her he said, “Dear, please turn on the tape recorder. I made a recording especially for you.”

“But,” she protested, “it can’t hug me.”

When someone wraps their arms around us we feel safe and loved, wanted and important.

Love has eyes to see the misery of others, ears to hear the cries of others, feet that hurry to help others, hands that can lift the burdens of others and a heart to feel the pain of others.

The Bible urges, “Dear Friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know Him better.”

Prayer: Father, we bring our souls to You for Your salvation, our misery to You for Your grace, our pain to You for Your healing, our heartaches to You for Your comfort. We ask that we may always feel Your love and presence in our lives and that we will gladly share it with others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: 1 John 4:7-8
