But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Rom. 5:8

Fortunately God’s love is not contingent on our ability to present a good front. We can’t earn redemption and we can’t earn His love either.  He loves us when we are selfish and mean spirited. He loves us when we fail and when we give up.  His arms of love remain open and His offer to comfort and restore us continues to stand, not because we deserve it but because we need it.

Lord, I admit it. I’m needy.
