True love

“Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.” (Psalm 107:43, ESV)

Consider how he loves us.

His love holds tight when we let go. His love endures when we give up.

How many times have we run from him? How many times in faithlessness or failure or fear have we sought to go back to that old life?

Yet every time he seeks us out.

How many times have we disobeyed him? How deeply have we wounded him?

Yet time and again, he responds with kindness, mercy and grace.

His love is what true love looks like. I compare my own love to his and I feel like I need to use a different word to describe whatever it is I do.

Thank God for the cross. Thank God for new life. Thank God for certain hope.

Thank God for true love.
