1 John 3:1
See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God.
Only three people on earth are called my children. Until they were born, I know that I had only a vague idea of the depth of meaning in this verse, especially not having had a relationship with my earthly father. There is literally no one and nothing under God that has more value to me than my children. I would give everything I have to meet their needs. When I pick up the phone and hear the words, “Hey, mom,” it brightens my day.
To think that the Creator of the universe allows me to call Him my Father is almost incomprehensible. Thinking of how much I love my children gives me a glimpse of how much God must love me. Imagine how He lights up when we talk to Him. Imagine how much He wants us to have everything we need and how He wants us to be happy and content. Imagine how He hurts when we hurt. Imagine how He just enjoys knowing that we are His.
