Love As He Has Loved Us
The Menu by Steven Manchester is a beautiful allegorical tale about the great love of God for all His children for all eternity.
Life is short. Eternity is long. We are all born and we all die, we need to make sure we live well between the dates. The most important and powerful thing that we can do is to love. Live a life of love. Make a difference as you live out love in action.
There are some heart-warming conversations with God in Heaven before birth and after death. God declares “I will be with you in your most joyous moments and unspeakable pains.” This echoes God’s promise in the bible to never leave us nor forsake us. When we cry out to God, He always hears and He always answers.
We need to exercise our faith muscle. “Fear is for the faithless.” When we have faith, we need not fear because God is in control no matter what our circumstances appear to say.
Our earthly parents may fail us, God never will. As parents we try our best but it is not always good enough because we are only human. I loved these words from a new Dad: “You’ll always be the only person you can be – my son. And regardless of the roads you travel, I’ll be proud.” These are God’s thoughts too. He loves us all equally and unconditionally. God is love. His character is love. He urges us to love as He has loved us.
We all make choices in life. We have a menu of choices. We want to choose wisely and live well.
The Menu is a very beautiful book about love. It reveals the heart of God. The Menu is a work of fiction but God’s love and truth shines through. The Menu is beautifully written. It will fill your heart with love and leave you feeling peaceful.
