May 17-23 Family Devotions
These short devotions are from Sally Lloyd-Jones’ book,
“Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing.”
Week of May 17-23
Theme: JUST BECAUSE!
When you’re thinking up a reason, do you ever say, “Just Because”?
God says, “I love you—Just Because!”
He doesn’t say, “I love you because you’re kind” or, “I love you because you’re helpful’ or, “I love you because you’re getting good grades” or even, “I love you because you love me.”
God says, “The reason I love you is—I LOVE you!”
If God loved you because you’re kind, that means if you stopped being kind, he’d stop loving you. Or if he loved you because you loved him, what if you stopped loving him?
God loves us—Just Because!
“Our God did not love us or choose us for anything in us; it was simply because he loves us.”
