The scripture for today, December 22 (12/22), is 1st Samuel 12:22 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
Among all the pretend gods that people have worshiped, there has never been one who made people because he wanted someone to love and wanted them to be his children. Islam, for example, teaches Allah made man to have someone to worship him. Allah has 99 names, but none of them is Love. It is the same with other purported gods. Buddhism and Hinduism have gods with no personalities at all; they are just the essence of the universe. So sad.
Oh, how much mankind misses by not opening up to the one and only God. He wants you to be his child! He wants to lavish you with his love.
God made you because God is Love. Love must have someone to love. That’s you, dear friend. That’s you!
Amazing love of God. It pleases him to make you his own. It pleases him! You the lowly. You the weak. You the inconsistent. You the sinner.
Let your soul be elevated by the God of Love. Let your heart be warmed. Let your spirit be touched with eternity. Then lift up your voice and shout, “My soul is overwhelmed!”
