Love helps those who may never return the favor...

     The only thing we ever did to deserve salvation was to be rebels against God. One day a little girl, dressed in white, carrying a bunch of flowers, passed a small boy who was playing in a dusty street. The boy threw a handful of dirt at the girl.
It struck the edge of her dress and fell on her shoes. She stood still. Her face flushed as though she would cry. Instead, she smiled and threw a flower at the boy who waited to see what she would do. He was surprised and ashamed because in return for dirt he had received a flower.
     
Man is a rebel against God, but all that he has ever received from God was the gift of the Lord Jesus Christ. Rebellion was all we ever did to earn it. (Ephesians 2:2-4).
