God Shows His Love

He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing.
~ Deuteronomy 10:18 [NLT]

The God who created the universe is an active one that goes out of his way to show that he cares! The story of the Bible is full of ways God steps in for the lost, enslaved, broken, underdog, sinful, outcasts, and even the rich in an effort to show them that He cares. God freed the enslaved people of Egypt, he gave Solomon riches and wisdom despite the fact he was conceived through questionable circumstances, and He died on the cross for the world to save us from our self-inflicted death sentences. The lesson for us is that we are to live in a way that shows the love of God in practical ways. Give food and shelter to the needy, words of hope to the lost, encouragement to the depressed, and be people who stand up for the oppressed. The comfort is that when we fail to do these things with perfection because as people we inevitably don’t get it all right; God sees the needs of the world and he works to bring justice and provision!
