Late Good Apples Friday // His Amazing Love for Us.

Welcome to the Late Good Apples Friday
Yeah I'm late. I'm sorry. I'm not even going to say my excuse. It's pretty dumb.
But I'm still here.

Today I want to talk about loving one another.
And caring for one another.

Actually while I was folding laundry yesterday my mom was watching FireProof on the tv. And in the movie the character was complaining about loving his wife so much and sacrificing time for her, but all she would do was get mad at him for being nice to her and almost discouraging him to be nice because she would receive his gifts with lots of unthanks. When he was telling this to his father he stood there right by a wooden cross just listening to him.

I know in my life I can sometimes be tired of doing things for my family like cleaning and receiving nothing back. Sometimes I think the least they could do is keep it clean and not clutter it again. Sometimes I complain when I'm doing so much work for them and they ask me to do more things like take out my dog when it really is my turn. They could've been nice and took him out for him even though it was my turn. And sometimes I get mad about that.

But we need to look at Jesus. He died for us so that we could follow him and have eternal life with him. And what did we do? We constantly sinned against him and refused to follow him. This world has seen Jesus him who died for us, loved us, and forgives every single sin that we have done and what do we do? We sin more. We focus our eyes on things other than him. We make other things idols other than him. We hate him. We sin against him and don't even think it's a big deal.
But God died for us. He saw what we did for him. And despite that he loved us enough to die for us.

God you are amazing! Your love is perfect.
It is stronger than words can express.
Even though they spat in your face not knowing that you were going to die for them.
you loved them.
And even though my friends and family sometimes are not thankful for my caring for them.
Help me to love them and help care for them.
No matter what.
Help me to love like you, Lord.

bouncing in to say bye,
