Have You Reread the Love Letter?

A dear brother, recently speaking to a group of children and young people, recalled the time when he had to leave a very special young lady who had won his heart and enter the armed services. While he was away on active duty, he wrote a letter to her every day. One time she wrote that she had not received a letter from him one day, but the next day she received two of them. She told him she had reread his previous letters while waiting for a new one. The brother then asked the children and young people why they thought she would reread a letter when she already knew what it said! After a pause, a dear teenage believer, with a knowing grin, answered, “Because she loved you.”
What a simple and sweet object lesson! We have received a divine and perfect love letter—the Holy Scriptures—from One who loves us with an infinite and eternal love. Do we show our love to Him by continually reading and rereading His Word? May our hearts be exercised to be found always reading the living Letter from His heart of love to us!
“How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psa. 119:103103How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103)).
