Beloved. Be loved. You are loved!

“You are loved!” is something I’ve been telling people for a long time.

A lot of people interpret it to mean the same thing as saying “I love you.” It does, kind of. But not entirely.

When I say, “you are loved,” I do mean that I love you. I also am reminding you that you have other people who love you and, most importantly, that you are loved unconditionally and perfectly by God. To me, there is no truth more important, more comforting, more reassuring than knowing that I am loved.

We all need to be reminded of that, don’t we?

Beloved, be loved! You are loved!
