God: is a lover of the first kind….
Isaiah 46:14-16 (KJV) “But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me”.
If you are comparing those whom you have loved throughout your life and how they demonstrated that love, there is always one who did it just that much better than the others.
That is how you can look at Jesus and the love He has for you and has consistently showed that love. Everyday is something new that happens which you can pinpoint as coming from Him and it is such a special love affair.
In the reading today, He wrote your name in the palm of His hand and everytime He does something you pop right up before Him.
Beloved if that isn’t love, I don’t know….
