10 Continue your love to those who know you,
your righteousness to the upright in heart. Psalm 36:10
Even if David hadn’t written this, would the Lord still continue his love toward us? Absolutely, but it’s more of an affirmation of what we already know to be true. If we know nothing else about life, we can still know that God loves us. He displays His love in many ways. Often, though, it’s up to us to discover what those ways are.
- He obviously loved through His son.
- He loves us by the way he disciplines and chastises us (Hebrews 12:8)
- He loves us through many blessings (Ephesians 1:3)
Recognizing these as God’s love is important because we often go through life unaware.
Take time today to think about these manifestations of God’s love. You’ll be glad you did.
