Unfailing Love for All
Read: PSALM 36:5-10
I’ve seen God’s love embrace an imprisoned alcoholic, a cancertormented wife and mother, my seven-year-old son, and a former prostitute. These persons and numerous others bear witness to our God’s precious, unfailing love for all persons.
When we compare the repeated use of the phrase “unfailing love” in Psalm 36, we discover the psalmist’s meaning of the term. The steadfast love of God is faithful beyond measure; it is precious as a place of refuge, and is requested to continue to persons who are intimate with God.
Have you ever watched chicks run under the wings of a hen? As many as they may be, there is always room! It is that way with God’s love. By our standards, God’s love is beyond measure. Our vocabulary cannot contain it. Such unmeasurable love is precious because it is faithfully available for us all. Rich, poor, or in the big middle; young, old, or somewhere in between; all descendents of the earth can find refuge under God’s loving wings.
Thank you, God, for extending your love even to me. AMEN.
