God loves everyone and God is always there to listen to you, but sometimes you just want a person you can see. Everyone is like that. Since you can’t see God, it’s hard sometimes to feel Him near you. Sometimes when you are sad, you need a friend to some along and hug you or hold your hand or just sit with you. This is how we show God’s love and you can do it too.
If you see someone you know who is sad or hurt, you can show God’s love by being someone they can see. You can hug them, ‘cause hugs are the best, and even tell them God loves them. Ask them if they are okay, and why not ask them to play with you to make them feel better? God uses you to show His love to someone who needs it and He will do the same for you.
The next time you are sad or need a friend, and one comes along, try to remember that God sent that person to cheer you up. That’s how much God loves us.
“A friend loves at all times … “ (Proverbs 17:17a).
Who can you show God’s love to today?
