The Bible tells me so. . .

Jesus loves me
this I know
for the Bible tells me so.

Many of us having been singing those words before we could even talk in full sentences.

Are they just some trivial words we sing is Sunday School or do we believe them?

Our oldest memory verses for the week:


 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. 
1 Cor. 13: 4-8a

Our 2nd graders verse for the week:

I the LORD speak the truth;
   I declare what is right.
Isaiah 45:19c


While helping the boys memorize their verses this week, I was struck by how they go together.
All the verses we quote at weddings, yet somehow don't quite believe them.
Love never fails.

But J's verse reminds us-The LORD always tells the truth and always tells us what is right.


While dwelling on those thoughts another verse sprang to mind.

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. 
I John 4:16a


Maybe you need reminded today, that Love never fails-because God is love. Man's love may fail, but the LORD your God never does.
Because God-Your Lord always speaks the truth.



Grace and Peace,
Angie
