“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”
– 1 John 3:1
Live It! Tip of the Week: As you enter more deeply into Lent, take a step back to recall with the Lord the times when your life was ruptured or interrupted in a particularly intense way. What thoughts or actions got you through that time? What did you learn about yourself? What did you learn about God? In recalling these memories, can you see how you remained a beloved son or daughter of the living God? Let that realization of your core identity – as a child of the living God – sink in and inform your thoughts and actions this week.
God, you are the Everlasting God. You are my living and faithful Father. You have adopted me as your child into your eternal family through your Son, Jesus Christ. Help me to trust that your love is unconditional and everlasting in my life. Amen.
