A young girl once ran away from home to get married. Her father was very angry and said that he would never forgive her. She was sorry to have grieved her father and wrote him long letters begging for his forgiveness; however, he took no notice. By and by, the daughter had a little son. When the boy was old enough to run about alone, she said to herself, “I will write no more letters to my father, but I will send my little son. He shall be a living letter. My father will know what I want to say to him when he sees his little grandson. He will know that I still love him and want his forgiveness.”

So she took the little boy to his grandfather’s house and sent him in alone to speak to her father. She bade him to put his arms around his grandfather’s neck and kiss him. When the little fellow did this the old man’s heart melted. He sent at once for the mother and forgave her.

A minister one day sat in the vestry of his church to meet anyone who might have spiritual difficulties. Only one came. “What is your difficulty?” asked the minister. The man answered, “My difficulty is the ninth chapter of Romans, where it says, ‘Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated,'” “Yes,” said the minister, “there is great difficulty in that verse; but which part of the verse is difficult for you?” “The latter part, of course,” said the man. “I cannot understand why God should hate Esau.” The minister replied, “That verse has often been difficult, but my difficulty has always been with the first part of the verse. I never could understand how God could love that wily, deceitful, supplanting scoundrel Jacob.”

One day C.H. Spurgeon was walking through the English countryside with a friend. As they strolled along, the evangelist noticed a barn with a weather vane on its roof. At the top of the vane were these words: GOD IS LOVE. Spurgeon remarked to his companion that he thought this was rather inappropriate place for such a message. “Weather vanes are changeable,” he said, “but God’s love is constant.” “I don’t agree with you about those words, Charles,” replied his friend. “You misunderstood the meaning. That sign is indicating a truth: Regardless of which way the wind blows, God is love.”
