“The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand.” John 3:35

My middle daughter is at the stage where she is just learning to write. She is constantly writing notes to everyone in the family and her friends. Most of them say I love you. However the notes to her brother are sometimes taken back when he offends or teases her!

Understanding the nature of love is something into which we grow. As we mature we realise that love is not simply an emotion that we feel but rather begins with a choice, a commitment we make towards another. The emotions can follow as a result of that. We can often struggle in our relationships to love in a selfless way and we can feel disappointed or hurt when people don't meet our expectations.

That's why it is so important that we meditate on God's kind of love because it is not like what we experience with each other. God’s love gives in measures greater than we can receive. It doesn't hold back. His love flows from an abundant supply. There will never be a limit or a cut off point.

There is nothing that God will hold back from you today. His trust and confidence in you is beyond anything you have in yourself. He sees you as the finished article. Perfect and complete. The Father gave all things to the son. Through Jesus we have been adopted into the family. We are children of the King. Live today with an understanding of who you are and whose you are.
