A shopper once said to a sales associate, "I want the most beautiful gold heart that you have in your store on the finest gold chain available for my fiancé."
After considering many different choices, he made his decision, and said, "I'll take that one."
"Shall I inscribe her name on it?" asked the sales associate.
"Oh no!" came the instant reply. "If we break up, I would like to use it again."
How different is God's love. We hear it in the words of Jesus when He said, "I have loved you with an everlasting love." How comforting it is to know that God's love is permanent. How fortunate we are to know that God's love is guaranteed by His Word. How wonderful it is to know that God's love is for everyone. And finally, how grateful we are to know that His love makes our salvation through Jesus Christ possible.
