THE COLLAGE OF HUMANITY - Max Lucado's Daily Devotional

Hopefully, as you read Max's thoughts below you will find comfort in them. Notice that he uses the word "Let this love happen". God is not going to force His love on you. Open your heart with prayer so He can come in. As the saying goes: "if you keep doing the same things" don't expect change. Work at this to gain more happiness!

The reason God loves you is that he has chosen to love you. Others may abandon you, divorce you, and ignore you, but God will love you. These are his words: “I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved” (Romans 9:25 THE MESSAGE).

Let this love happen in your life, and prepare yourself for a new day. As God has his way with you, he will not let you live with your old hatred and prejudices. You’ll begin to see people in a different way. The neighbor down the street? He’s not a person who forgets to mow his lawn; he’s made in the image of God. God loves a diverse creation, and God’s love finds beauty in the collage of humanity. Life will become less a chore and more a stroll through God’s art gallery. This is how happiness happens.
