Was humming a choral piece for church
when the connection between
two of Pastor’s recent messages
The first a few Sundays back was on
man’s perpetual neediness and
The second this Tuesday night
was on experiencing God’s love.
It struck me that though
by His grace I am materially
what I constantly need is love –
and that God’s love is truly
all-sufficient to meet my need.
And sometimes I do not experience
the fulness of God’s love
because I look to fellow man for help
to meet this pressing need,
and forget that that same person
is desperate for love as well.
How can a starving beggar
feed and fill the stomachs
of another starving beggar?
when we look to broken cisterns.
It is not out of bitterness
this is spoken –
I really love my family and friends –
but an acknowledgement of a fact
that we all
need God’s love to fill us first.
And that will be
a beautiful sight
