A shopper once said to a sales associate, “I want the most beautiful gold heart that you have in your store and I want you to hang it on the finest gold chain available. It’s for my fiancée.”
After considering many different choices, he made his decision, and said, “I’ll take that one. Inscribe on it, 'My one and only love.'”
“Shall I inscribe her name on it?” asked the sales associate.
“Oh no!” came the instant reply. “If we break up, I may want to use it again.”
How different is God’s love. We hear it in the words of Jesus when He said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” How comforting it is to know that God’s love is permanent. How fortunate we are to know that God’s love is guaranteed by His Word. How wonderful it is to know that God’s love is for everyone. And finally, how grateful it is to know that His love makes our salvation through Jesus Christ possible.
Prayer: Help us, Father, to understand how much You love us. May those who read this “Seed” come to know You and accept Your Son as their Savior and love Him because He first loved us and gave Himself for us. Amen.
Scripture: 1 John 4:11-12 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
