A "love" story

A tall gray haired bearded man came up to me today, and asked, "Why do you suppose some people love God more than others? As I looked up into his bewildered eyes I said,  "Our Father answers this question for us, and I know that it is true.  He said, "Please tell me the answer, and why you know it is true.  I said, "First let me tell you a story, then I will tell you what God's says in his word, and how I know it is true" He smiled and said, "Yes, please do."

Once upon a time there were two men, and they both lived a life of sin.  One sinned more than the other through his own eyes, and the eyes of the world.  So naturally he had more guilt and shame weighing him down then the other that did not sin that much through his own eyes, and the eyes of the world.  

 I said to my friend, "We know there is no way either one can pay for their sins, or be forgiven for what they have done on their own.  We know the only way they can be forgiven is through Christ and his blood sacrifice for their sins on the cross. Only through Him can both of their sins be forgiven, but which one do you think will love God more?

My friend answered, "The one that thought they had sinned the most is the one that is forgiven the most, and they will love God more."  I said, "Now I will tell you what God says, and why I know it is true."

Luke 7:47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins were forgiven-for she loved much.  But he who has been forgiven little loves little.

My friend looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "Now I know why people love God differently. Some give all of their sins to God, and some do not. Those that give all are forgiven more, and love more, and those who give God little, loves him little."

My friend then asked me, "How is it that you know this is true?"  I said, "Because I was forgiven for many, and that is why I love him so much."

So today if you feel like you are loving God a little or not enough maybe it is because you have only been forgiven for a little, and not given him all.
