Every once in awhile,
my husband and I will have a difficult argument.
I will still reach to hold his hand,
and tell him, “I love you”,
and give him a kiss.
He has asked me, “How can you do that?”
I say “I always love you, no matter what.”
At church this weekend,
the sermon was about how Jesus loves us.
The pastor said, “Jesus loves us no matter what.”
It’s an unconditional love,
and it feels so comforting.
Jesus love us, no matter —
if we fail,
if we get angry,
if we make a mistake,
if we are selfish,
if we forget to thank Him…
His love is always there.
We might say, “How can Jesus love me?”
I have made a mess of my life.
I have made so many mistakes.
I have said the wrong thing.
Jesus forgives it all,
because He loves us, no matter what.
