Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 February 14

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another” (1 John 4:7-11).

Today’s Morsel: Today’s Morsel is a poem entitled “True Love” that I found on the internet and felt was appropriate for our Morsel today.  

True Love
Love can always conquer, whatever discord brings, 
and love can also cover a multitude of things.
Don't you underestimate what love can ever do, 
for love is God eternal and His love can renew.
What is cold and lifeless, now lost all hope and died, 
for love can breathe new meaning and give it back new life.
Please don't give up on love when it seems that all is lost, 
for there is always hope if we're prepared to pay the cost.
For love is always worth it no matter how much the price, for love will be much stronger when we trust in Jesus Christ.
So let God have full reign, let Him live within your heart then you will know true love, for this He will impart.

Sing:  He left the splendor of heaven, knowing His destiny was the lonely hill of Golgotha, there to lay down His life for me.
If that isn’t love, the ocean is dry; there’s no stars in the sky, and the sparrow can’t fly!  If that isn’t love, then heaven’s a myth, there’s no feeling like this, if that isn’t love.

Thought For Today: Happy Day of Love!
