The Best Things in Life Are Free

by Meg Fernandez   

If there is one thing in this world that we can never solicit or buy is love. This is given free of charge to people whom we care for. A mother would not ask any remuneration for her selfless love for her child. We find ourselves sacrificing for the people we love and yet do not expect of receiving anything from them.

God’s love is far better than this. As a matter of fact, human mind can never fathom the expanse of God’s love. The following passage taken from Ephesians 3:18 declares that we “may have [the] power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Our father in heaven is truly an epitome of love; a love beyond human understanding.

God is giving us the best thing in life out of His great love for us. As His children, He wants us to experience nothing but the best. The Bible reveals this as the life eternal as what Apostle John affirms in 1 John 2:25, “and this is what he promised us—eternal life.” Having eternal life means accepting Christ as the Saviour sent by the Father for those who are ready to believe this great love. This act of acceptance which no amount of money can equal is costly more than anything in this world.  Yet, it is given to us for gratis. Indeed, we can say that the best things in life are free!

Memory Verse:

“May have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
