Many have never known love. From the moment they were born, they faced rejection from those who were assigned to care and nurture them. As they get older and without knowing it, they begin looking for love in people that reflect their pain. In their minds, their value and worth is nothing. The vicious cycle continues until they completely lose sight of the truth. Do you know someone like this? You will recognize them because they’ve been through a string of broken relationships and may possibly rely on drugs or alcohol to get them through their day. They need you to tell them how loved they really are and to share with them God’s love. Be aware that they may be hardened and may reject the things you tell them, but don’t worry about that, you are only responsible for a portion. He will continue to chase after them and maybe one day they will believe.
In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10
