Cry for Love

Written by Tom Smith.

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God..." (NIV) 1 John 4:7

A father sat at his desk poring over his monthly bills when his young son rushed in and announced, "Dad, because this is your birthday and you're 55 years old, I'm going to give you 55 kisses, one for each year!" When the boy started making good on his word, the father exclaimed, "Oh, Andrew, don't do it now; I'm too busy!"

The youngster immediately fell silent as tears welled up in his big blue eyes. Apologetically the father said, "You can finish later." The boy said nothing but quietly walked away, disappointment written all over his face. That evening the father said, "Come and finish the kisses now, Andrew." But the boy didn't respond.

A short time after this incident the boy drowned. His heartbroken father wrote, "If only I could tell him how much I regret my thoughtless words and could be assured that he knows how much my heart is aching."

Love is a two-way street. Any loving act must be warmly accepted or it will be taken as rejection and can leave a scar. If we are too busy to give and receive love, then we are 'super' busy. Nothing is more important than responding with love to the cry for love from those who are near and precious to us. Nothing is costlier than loving, except not loving.

Reflection

How can you give and receive love even when you are busy?

What can you do to make up to people you have denied love?
