When I was a kid, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every
now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made
breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago,
my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned biscuits in
front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all
my dad did was reach for his Biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my
day was at school.
I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my
mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget
what he said: “Honey, I love burned biscuits.”
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he
really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said,
“Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she’s real tired.
And besides… a burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!”
You know, life is full of imperfect things… and imperfect people. I’m
not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries
just like everyone else.
What I’ve learned over the years is that
learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each
others differences, is one of the most important keys to creating a
healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
So…please pass me a biscuit. And yes, the burned one will do just fine!
4.But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,…7.that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8.For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that
7. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9.In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 1John 4:7-9.
WOW!! 1John 4:8 plainly states that we know God by loving, for God in fact is love!!!
I truly want to fall deeply in love with Jesus so I can be kind and more loving to others! This is The Gospel of Jesus in action!!
