Not left out
“For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.” - 1 JOHN 3:11
A little boy was having a rough time and it seemed that he was in trouble with his mom all day long. When it was time for bed, the boy knelt to say his prayers. He prayed for his father, his sisters and brothers, and for everyone he knew at school. When he finished, he looked at his mom and asked, ‘Did you notice that I left you out?’ Jesus doesn’t leave anybody out, does He?
We can be confident that He loves us, because He went to incredible lengths to demonstrate that love to us. And He is ready and willing to forgive us – even when we have had a no good, very bad day.
