Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
I remember reading a true story about a little boy, 5 years old, who was asked to give his blood so his sister could live. When the doctor explained it to him and asked if he was willing to do this, he hesitated but for a moment and said, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liza".
As the process began, he laid down in the hospital, his sister in a bed beside him. Quietly he asked if he would start to die right away. You see....he mistakenly thought he was going to have to give her ALL his blood. It brings tears to my eyes to think of this again, a little boy only on earth for 5 years, loved his sister SO much, he was willing to lay down his life to save hers.
God loves us that much and more. He knows the numbers of hairs on our head, He thinks about us all the time, and wants what is best for us. He loves us with an unconditional love. If you put your trust in Him, you will have that love for all eternity. A hymn The Love of God written in 1917 sums this up.
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.
