O God, remember us and bless us,
bless the families of Israel and Aaron.
And let God bless all who fear God—
bless the small, bless the great.
Oh, let God enlarge your families—
giving growth to you, growth to your children.
May you be blessed by God,
by God, who made heaven and earth.
The heaven of heavens is for God,
but he put us in charge of the earth.
This past weekend was Mother’s Day. I would like to say that I hope you had a beautiful day, whether you spent it with your mother or you are a mother. People who have been given the joyful experience of parenthood understand a love that is indescribable. It is unexplainable. It exists without conditions. If you have had grandchildren, you know it at a deeper level.
I used to think that I could love my children more than God loves me. I used to think I could forgive other people more than Jesus would forgive me.
However, there is no comparison. He is the creator of love, which is infinite and perfect.
It doesn’t matter how old we get. God still considers us his child. There is nothing we can do to make him love us more or less. There is nothing that we have done that causes him not to forgive us. He is love, and we are his. He sacrificed everything so that we might believe in the love he is and has for each one of us.
Thank you, Jesus, for loving us without conditions or expectations. We don’t have to impress you or provide something to receive what you offered at the cross. We praise you for your perfect love, one that stretches far and wide with no limits. In Jesus name, Amen.
Baring His Beauty,
