Demonstrations of Love

May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant. - Psalm 119:76
 
Right before Thanksgiving, an elderly man in Phoenix called his son in New York and said, “Your mother and I are divorcing—45 years of misery is enough. But I’m sick of talking about this, so please call your sister and tell her the news.”
 
The son called his sister in Chicago and she immediately called her father. “You’re not getting divorced!” she said, “We’ll be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing.”
 
The old man hung up the phone and turned with a wry smile to his wife. “They’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own fares!”   
 
If you’re a parent, you can appreciate the humor of this story. Yet I must say I’m glad we never have to worry about God using deception to get us to spend time with him. Instead, he demonstrates his great love through his Son, Jesus.
 
“It is in spending oneself that one becomes rich.” - Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923)
