In the moment we hold our newborn for the first time, a new kind of love washes over us. Holding that precious baby is overwhelming and wonderful. We feel at a degree that we have never felt before. It is impossible to define or measure or contain our emotions.
We have the ability to love to such a degree only because God first loved us. He loved us so we could love him and love others. Without him we couldn’t know the greatness of love.
We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
