Today's Verse: See what great 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 (NIV) 

To lavish: to be abundant, generous, be extravagant with something.  What a great way to describe the way God loves us.

He LOVES US.  He adopted us as HIS CHILDREN.

My sister adopted a little baby boy 5 years ago.   She and her husband and struggled with infertility and finally, God just opened wide a door and blessed them with a newborn baby boy.  

The reality is that she loves little C as much as I love my children.  The blessing is that he has been graced with a mommy who cherishes him that much more, because he was unwanted, and she made him hers. 

God does that for us.  He creates a home for us, when we are lost and unwanted.

The way He loves us, is like a father, an Abba {Daddy} who cherishes us as His.

He laughs at our antics, He listens to our cries, He picks us up when we've fallen and dusts us off and hugs away our tears.  He patiently corrects (as only a father can) and constantly challenges us to do better, to keep trying.

He looks at us through the lens of a loving father who appreciates our unique strengths and helps us through our weaknesses.  

There is confidence is knowing that we are WANTED by our Heavenly Father.  God wants us... and that makes us BEAUTIFUL!
