One of the books I love to read to my daughter is Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You. It's a story about two Nutbrown Hares (Little and Big) who used large measures to gauge their love for each other in answer to Little Nutbrown Hare's question, "Guess how much I love you?" I find the story simple yet so sweet and endearing.
Guess how much I love you? Oftentimes, the measure of love is determined by the price tag attached to the gifts. The season of love, joy and peace has become so commercialized that the focus is no longer on the love and thoughts that come with the gifts... It's saddening.
Guess how much God loves you? Well, this much: "This is how God showed his love among us: He's sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" (1 John 4:9,10).
May our Christmas be established around that kind of love. And may that love flows from you to someone today... It's heart-warming.
