The Need For Love

By   •   May 5   •   Topics:

A husband and wife visited an orphanage where they hoped to adopt a child. In an interview with the boy they wanted, they told him in glowing terms about the many things they could give him. To their amazement the little fellow said, “If you have nothing to offer except a good home, clothes, toys, and the other things that most kids have—why, I would just as soon stay here.” “What on earth could you want besides those things?” the woman asked. “I just want someone to love me,” replied the little boy. There you have it! Even a little boy knows that “man shall not live by bread alone.” Our deeper yearnings and longings can be met only by a renewed fellowship with the One in whose image we were created, God.

All of mankind is searching for more. Be inspired by this Billy Graham TV special, ‘The Burning Search.’

Prayer for the day

Thank You for loving me, God. This knowledge never ceases to amaze me. I praise and love You, my heavenly Father

    I really related to the “Need for Love”. Being feeling really lonely, especially today. Not married, no children and not that many friends to hang out with. But I do have God and I can have a better relationship with him and really I’m never alone. So this devotion really hit home. THANKS

    i’ve always felt my parents love, especially i could realize the depth of love of my father after his death. but i was totally shattered & broken when i thought the person who loved & understood me so much betrayed me, my husband. then i realized how much deep, beyond measure & understanding i realized the love of GOD, who keeps no record of our sins and is alwayz ready to forgive us. ThankYou Father JESUS for loving me
