The Father’s Love
A country had a cruel practice sending every man who attains the age of seventy five year to the forest where he would spend the remaining years practicing meditation to attain salvation.
An old man celebrated his 75th birthday and tearfully bid farewell to his family and left to the forest. His son accompanied him in the long and arduous journey to the forest. On their way the old man was carefully cutting down the thorny bushes on either side of the narrow path with a knife. Finally they reached the forest and while departing, the son asked him why he was cutting the thorns on the way. The loving father replied, “It was to make your return journey safe and comfortable.”
Our Loving lord Jesus gave his life for our sake.
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:1
I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: Isaiah 45:2
He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:10
