I am so thankful to be in a family that loves each other. I grew up in a loving christian home. I married a wonderful christian man with whom we have made a loving home for our children. We have been so blessed to love and be loved. It is almost always easy to love our family and our friends. This is especially true on Valentines Day when the entire day is focused on love. Did you know? We are commanded to show love and that God in His perfect ways, doesn't just command it but models it.
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 - The core of the Bible not only focuses on His love but is overflowing with it!
God loves us without condition. He knows we are not always sweet, sometimes we are just down right rotten. Yet He loves us anyway. There are times when we get it in our heads that we don't need to show love to someone because they don't show it to us. I sure am glad that God doesn't love us conditionally by the way we act. Our love from Him is never deserved, it simply IS!
