A woman went to the butcher shop to buy a chicken for the Sunday meal. The butcher had only one scrawny chicken left. He put it on the scale. “Three pounds,” he said. “That’s too scrawny; don’t you have something bigger?” she asked. He pretended to rummage around, and then put the same chicken back on the scale.

Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” While we were yet sinners. While we didn’t love God, nor did we regard Him.

Who doesn’t want to be loved? You know, some people don’t know how to be loved? Some of us, for some reason, don’t know how to handle closeness.
