Lenten Thought of the Day

 

Lent-Image-feature.jpgI asked my daughter what love means. She answered, “Mama,” with a smile.

Scripture tells us that God is Love (1 John 4:8). Motherhood (and all forms of parenthood) reveals that same divine love. As does any role that reflects God’s love (aunt/uncle/grandparent/mentor/teacher/friend/etc).

The hallmark of this relationship is sacrifice, genuine care, and unconditional love. It isn’t perfect, but effort and humility are present.

How blessed we are to be on the receiving end of this, and how blessed we are to shed this light to those whom we hold near.
