Mar 14 – On the Way to Forever

Chicken Soup for the Soul recently had a story of a young girl’s concept of love, of meeting the man of her dreams, marriage and the birth of their three children. It described how her concept of love changed with the passing years, the children’s arrival, through times of trouble and tragedy. She concluded by saying, “suddenly forever seems like the perfect amount of time to spend with someone I couldn’t imagine living without.” While human love can be wonderful, the most perfect love anyone can know is God’s love for us, and ours for Him. Since we are all on the way to forever, the wise among us will accept God’s loving offer of mercy and forgiveness and become a part of His family. Then we can be forever with Him. John described this with the words, ”this is love, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the … sacrifice for our sins.”
