Kitchen Table Devotions

Matthew 18

Day 11

So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.

Matthew 18:12-14

That’s all we need to know; God’s heart is for everyone we know and meet.  He doesn’t want one of these to perish.  Hell is not God’s will, and it should be ours either.  But to want heaven takes a heart from Him.  Everyone, including ourselves, is precious, not perishable.  It’s that motivation that moves our mouths and our muscles to save, not sacrifice.  God is setting us up or preparing us to talk about forgiveness but forgiveness doesn’t work where the heart doesn’t want what God loves.  God loves us so much that He wants us to have and share His love in our lives.
