A salesman complimented a young mother on her well-behaved son, adding, "I have eight children of my own."
"Eight kids!" she exclaimed in disbelief. "I can't imagine dividing my love by eight."
"I don't divide my love," he said, "I multiply it!"
How like God. We read in His word that "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son . . . for everyone." His love is unlimited and all inclusive. And we would never know how much He loved us until it was seen in Scripture. Love began with God, was seen in Jesus and ends with us. There is no way to know, experience or understand the love of God except through the Son of God.
As we put our lives into His hands, He will put His love into our hearts. And as we come to understand His love we will realize that He has a lot of love for us to share with others, and we can help to multiply His love as we serve others.
