(Rather than write a post about my daughter on her birthday, I decided to let her write one. It reminds me of my Monday post. Could it be we both had the same Sunday service on our minds?)
How do we know we are loved?
We don't want people to merely say "I love you." That isn't good enough. We want to know deep within ourselves that that person does love us. We want to be shown love.
I know my parents love me because they provide for me and show me everyday they love me. God shows me everyday that He loves me through the blessings He gives. He answers my prayers. He helps me do things I never thought I could do.
We learn love from being loved. God loved us, so we can love other people. I show my love to my two younger siblings by letting them choose the games or the videos. With my parents, I try to do what they say.
How do you show you love other people? Who proves their love to you? How do they do it?
(Hmmm… She shows love to her brother and sister by not always pressing for her own way, and shows love to her father and me through obedience. There's some wisdom there, in how to show love to our brothers and sisters and to God our Father.)
