Dec 16 – God is Love

I read recently of a Christian farmer who had painted on his weather vane, the words, “God is love.” His neighbor, a skeptic, asked, “Do you mean that God’s love changes like the wind does?”No,” replied the Christian, “I mean that God loves me no matter which way the wind blows.”. And that is a lesson which all of us need to remember. God is love, no matter which way the winds of adversity blow in our lives. When we are poor, when we prosper, when we succeed, when we fail, He is still there with His love. God loves us even when we hate ourselves. He sees the end from the beginning, while you and I see only our present success or failure. I am glad that God loves you and me. I know that from personal experience, but also from what He has written in His Word. For example, Paul wrote in the New Testament, “…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” No matter who you are, no matter what you have done, God still loves you.
