God's Love

Today’s scripture readings assure us of God’s overwhelming love for us.  As we reflect on the story of Abraham and the Gospel from Matthew we see over and over God’s immense love for his people and his desire for our good.  Our God is a God who has promised to always be there for us even in our darkest times.  God hears our prayers and knows our needs even before we even speak a word.  It is the paradox that God’s love never fails only we do.  There are times when God’s love seems very distant from us and we know that all we must do is return to God’s open arms and we will be comforted.  God’s love is beyond our human comprehension.  As we live this day let us try and be open to God’s amazing love for us.  Perhaps we will see it in nature, or in another person.  Where ever we see God’s love let us rejoice in the gift that it is.
