Dear “Zoo Visitor who Actually Stopped to Read the Sign on the Pelican Exhibit,”
I love you. Because you read the sign, you made it so I didn’t have to recite for you the information that is already available in printed form.
Dear “Child who Stopped in Your Day to Read My Word,”
I love you. Not just because you read your Bible. I loved you before you loved Me. I loved you before you were even born. I love you so much I wrote that entire Book about that love. I just thought you should hear it again.
Jeremiah 1:5a “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”
1 John 4:19 “We love because He first loved us.”
