A Sunday School superintendent was registering two new sisters in Sunday School.
When she asked them how old they were one replied, “We’re both seven. My birthday is April 8th and my sister’s is April 20th.” The superintendent replied, “That’s impossible girls.”
The other sister then spoke up and said, “No it’s true, one of us is adopted.”
“Oh,” the superintendent said, “Which one?”
The two sisters looked at each other and one said, “We asked Dad that question a while ago, but he just looked at us and said that he loved us both equally, so much so that he couldn’t remember which one of us was adopted.”
That is a wonderful analogy of the love of God. God loves us all, equally. We are loved, not because we have earned God’s love or deserve it, but because of God’s grace.

How often do YOU tell YOURSELF that YOU are a child of God? How often do YOU look at a person on TV who is less fortunate than yourself, struggling to find a better life and say, “That person is a child of God like ME.”
THE MORE I LOVE, THE MORE LOVE I HAVE TO OFFER. MAY MY LOVE BE A TRUE DEMONSTRATION OF GOD’S BLESSINGS IN MY LIFE!
