Thought of the Day !!

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
                                       Psalm 103:8-12 (NIV)

Let's take a moment or two today to think about how great God's love for us is.  Think about what a perfect parent would be like.  He/She would not be hot-headed and easily angered.  He/She would not hold grudges against the child.  He/She would punish to teach, not for his or her own enjoyment.  And the love that this perfect parent would have for the child would be deeper than the deepest ocean and higher than the farthest heaven.  The perfect parent is God the Father.

There is a song by Matthew West called "More", which is a song from God's perspective.  The chorus goes like this:

I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more

Today think about just how much your Father in Heaven loves you and how He shows it by what He does...and also by what He doesn't do.

In the love of Christ,
