"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!" – 1 John 3:1
God does not loves us because we live good, clean lives.
God does not love us because we give to the poor, the needy, and the unlovely.
God does not love us because we measure up or put our best foot forward.
He does not love us because we are helpful and kind...or go the second and third mile.
God loves us because He is our Father.
A blessed August to you!
