Our Daily Grace: Loved, Not Punished

 "We were created by God to be loved, not punished."

Joel Brueseke

"Long before He laid down Earth's foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love."

Ephesians 1:4

God has only good thoughts toward us.  His thoughts are from eternity past and have always been love.  God didn't create people to punish them, crush them, harm them or condemn them.  He created people to love them.  Like any good parent, He loved His kids long before they were even born.  Let's see ourselves wrapped in His love, cradled in His arms!

A thought: My purpose is to be loved by God.
