It has been nice, at least for me, to take a month to focus on love. It is a powerful thing, this love. I’m reminded of a story I heard years ago: a boy and his little sister were overheard as they conversed in their back yard.

Boy: “You’re nothing but a dummy. Dummy, Dummy, Dummy.”

Silence.

Boy: “You’re nothing but a stupid dummy. Stupid Dummy, Stupid Dummy, Stupid Dummy.”

Silence.

Boy, yet again: “You’re nothing but a ignorant stupid dummy. Ignorant Stupid Dummy, Ignorant Stupid Dummy, Ignorant Stupid Dummy.”

Girl: “Johnny.”

Boy: “What!”

Girl: “I love you.”

God’s love is like that: there for us, even when we revile Him, and often leaving us speechless. Isn’t love grand?

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
