There was a seven-year-old granddaughter who said to her grandfather, “In this family we are kind of serious about God, aren’t we?”
Grandpa said, “Yes, we sure are.” And the little girl asked, “Why?”
Grandpa wrapped the little girl in his arms, hugged her real close and said, “So that I can hug you and tickle you and try to tell you how much I love you and how glad I am that God gave you to us.”
The little girl grinned and said, “That’s cool.”
I’m not sure that hugging and tickling everybody we meet would go over very well. They might actually come and put us in one of those jackets with the buckles and really long sleeves and lock us in a rubber room.
However, we are supposed to figure out how to show that love to everyone we meet. The love we have experienced through Christ is supposed to be shared with everyone we meet: “They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love!!”
