Listen to the Word
How priceless is your unfailing love! (Psalm 36:7)
God’s hesed, his unfailing love, is different from the love we normally practice. We normally love something because it deserves to be loved. I love Dr. Pepper Slurpees because they taste good. A boy loves his girlfriend because she is cute, or funny, or smart, or kind.
God’s love is different. He does not love us because of something in us, but because of something in him. He loves us not because we are good, but because he is good. Hesed is not love that is given to something that is worth a lot. It is love that creates worth in the thing that is loved. How priceless is God’s unfailing love!
Live the Word
Is there a “tough to love” person in your life right now? Ask God to give you his kind of love for that person - a love that doesn’t wait for the other person to earn it.
