Chicken Soup for the Soul has a story of a young girl’s concept of love, of meeting the man of her dreams, marriage and the birth of their children. It described how her concept of love changed with the passing of years. She later said, “suddenly forever seems like a perfect amount of time to spend with someone I couldn’t imagine living without.” She is correct, but 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, wise people will accept God’s loving offer of mercy and forgiveness and spend forever with Him. John described this relationship with these words, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” With Whom are you going to live forever?
