And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
When we are little we are loved and cared for 24 hours a day – to make sure we are safe, fed, and bathed. We get lots of hugs and kisses. Our parents shower us with love, guiding us, reading us stories, helping us to learn how to walk and talk. What happens when we get big? When we become more independent and our parents are not with us every minute of the day? When we can feed ourselves, make our beds, tie our shoes, go to school and even drive a car?
Do our parents stop loving us just because we are big? No.
And this is how God loves us too. God loved us when we were small and God loves us when we are big. Remind your children that God’s love never stops.
