Daily Devotion: His Love for Her

Bible Reading: Genesis 29:9-20

Key Verse: Verse 20 – “And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.”

Key Words: for the love he had to her

A teenage girl, returning from an early date, found her mother still sitting up reading. "Mom," she said, sprawling in a chair, "how do you tell if you're really in love?"

Her mother smiled, walked over to the desk, pulled a weathered clipping out of the drawer, and handed it to her daughter. It read: “True love is like two deep rivers that meet and merge, intertwining completely into one, then flowing on together. The joys, happiness, and sorrows of each become the joys, happiness, and sorrows of the other. True love cannot be hurried, but once unselfishly rooted, it will grow forever.”

Thought: Silence when your words would hurt,

Patience when your neighbor’s curt.

Deafness when the scandal flows,

Thoughtfulness for another’s woes.

Promptness when a stern duty calls,

Courage when misfortune falls.
