Some of the simplest concepts are the most profound. We teach our children a simple song in Sunday school settings. The premise is really easy to learn. The song title is “Praise Him All Ye Little Children” and each succeeding verse simply changes one word to advance the song. As the title suggests, we praise Him. Then the song admonishes us to love, and then to serve, Him. And we do all of this because “God is love.”

We know that God loves us. How can we respond appropriately? We love Him. And how can our love be made evident in our lives? We offer praise to Him from the heart, and let that praise spill over into our lives as we serve Him by our obedience to Him.

Since our focus is on love this month, sing the second verse with me:

Love Him, love Him all ye little children

God is love, God is love;

Love Him, love Him all ye little children

God is love, God is love.

“If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” Jesus, John 14:23
