There are many things that divide people and, sadly, religion can be one of those things. Sometimes, people just aren’t very likable. This beautiful little book reminds us that we are to love others because of God’s love for us, even if we may not like them at the moment.
“God Gave Us Love” is a beautiful conversation between “Little Cub” and “Grandpa” which begins when the two are fishing while those pesky otters make a ruckus nearby. Little Cub worries that the otters will scare all the fish away. Grandpa reminds her that “Half the fun of fishing is being together…”
Simply profound theology is packed into this children’s book. “Any time we show love we’re sharing a bit of [God’s] love…” The ultimate gift of love from God to us was His Son. “God Gave Us Love” tells children that the gift of Jesus is “…a God-size love.”
