Strong Love

When my daughter was born, she had several birth defects. She had to stay in the hospital for several weeks after she was born. It was hard for me to leave her in the hospital nursery. Finally I was able to bring her home. The doctor handed my daughter to me. He said, “Give her a lot of love.”
As my daughter was growing up, she needed to stay in the hospital many times. She required special medical devices, and now she must be in a wheelchair. We have spent many, many hours waiting in doctors’ offices and clinics. But because I love my daughter so much, I have been able to accept her physical problems.
God is our Father. His love for us is very strong! That’s why He was willing to send His only son, Jesus, to die on the cross. Because of Jesus’ death, we can have our sins forgiven and become right with God.
Verse 5 of our Bible Reading says, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” If we love God, He will help us through the difficulties in our lives.
