"How Much More"
I've scoured toy stores, searched discount store's back rooms, used every connection I had - just to get the right toys for my boys. You see I had this idea that if I made sure their Christmas gifts were up to their expectations, that what would result would be happiness on a level never before matched among humans.
Just so you'll know, it didn't work.
Some years, the very toys we fought to get them broke within 15 minutes on Christmas day. Other years, the toy they wanted - had to have - couldn't live without on December 14th, was old news on the 25th.
I'm not here today to tell you not to want to show your love to your kids, your spouse or your family through presents. Nope.
What I am here to do is to let you know someone else does it better.
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Matthew 7:11 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
That's one of my favorite verses.
"How much more?"
We are loving but flawed, giving to get.
Oh but our loving Father..
sets no limits on His love for His children. You are loved. Wholly and dearly loved by God.
