In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:10 NRSV)
There is a story of a man who had climbed up on the roof of his house to do some minor repairs. Because of the steep pitch of the roof, he decided to tie a rope around his waist and then throw the rope over the top of the house down to the other side of the house so it would reach the ground. At that point, he called for his son and told him to tie the end of the rope to something secure. The boy tied the rope to the bumper of the car, which was in the driveway. It seemed to work well and the man proceeded with his work feeling the greatest sense of security.

Then his wife, who was unaware of her husband's ingenious security measure, decided to run an errand which required the use of the car. She did not see the rope tied to the bumper, and pulled out of the driveway. You know the result. The man survived, but can you pictured this man soaring over the peak of that roof like Evel Knievel? We laugh to keep from crying.

In the opposites of life, God is also laughing and crying with us. God loves us enough to care!

Lord Jesus, thank you for being an example of God's great love for me. Amen.
