Faithful Love

Love's the Only House

 

Psalm 5:7 But I enter your house by the abundance of your faithful love.

Our God is that way. If we want to come into His house it’s by His faithful love not by our worthiness. We can come in and get to know Him no matter our condition, as long as we have half of a willingness to be loved.

I was reading a book about a family who had one rebellious daughter, one daughter who just didn’t believe, one son who was judgmental and two daughters who were strong believers. The siblings were all adults and they would all meet together for dinner from time to time at their parents’ house. Their father and mother prayed for their children and loved them dearly, each one of them. Their home was welcoming no matter the son or daughter.

Those children entered their parents’ home by the faithful love of the mother and father. Their children weren’t perfect, any of them but there was love in their home for everyone of them.

There’s a music video by Martina McBride and in the last verse and chorus there is a young lady, due any day, but Don Juan leaves her because he doesn’t have any one to guide him. So the young lady comes into the grocery store where Martina is the cashier and tries to buy a carton of milk with no money. Martina covers her. The chorus goes “Love’s the only house big enough for all the pain in the world. Love’s the only house big enough for all the pain.”

Love is our God’s house. His faithful love is there for our pain and for others’. I want my house to be a house of love. Pray for me. It’s hard for a human to get there.
