This morning when I walked into the barn I was greeted by an assortment of my barn cats standing over the horse feed box begging for their breakfast. While I see this every day, today it made me think about how easy it is to please these wonderful animals. All you need to do is feed and water them regularly, and take the time on occasion to show them some love, and they love you back unconditionally. Wouldn't it be nice if we humans were so easy to get along with and not so selfish and demanding?
And it also reminded me of our relationship with God the Father. While we often do things that he doesn't approve of, and are sure to sin over and over again, He still loves us unconditionally. And to prove this He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to take the human form and ultimately die a horrible death as a human on the Cross of Calvary. He could have escaped the Cross, but he knew following through would afford us the opportunity to be saved.
But remember, since Jesus knows that we are sinners, and that He is the only Man to walk the earth sinless, he forgives us. He only asks that we believe in Him and make our commitment to Him. What grace. And the reward: Eternal Life.
Have a wonderful day; I'll speak with you again later.
