TODAY’S READING
2 Corinthians 5:1-7

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God loves me!

We live by faith, not by sight. – 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)

Making connections with students while teaching remotely is hard. I can’t pat them on the back or easily whisper words of encouragement when they struggle. I can’t offer high fives when they succeed. Instead, I try to get to know my students when they share a project or when we eat lunch together online. Still it’s hard not to feel disconnected.

One day after a reading lesson on character traits, I presented a slide with a picture of my face and asked my students to list some of my traits. Waiting anxiously, I wondered, Will they be kind or brutally honest? A quiet third-grade boy melted my heart by writing these words: “She loves me.” Yes, child! I most certainly do. If I do nothing else right, I have shown one child that I love him.

Just as I work hard to connect with my students, God is always calling to us and reaching out to draw us into relationship. It can be difficult to feel God’s pats on the back or hear God’s whispers of encouragement. But when we take time to know God’s character through reading scripture and observing creation, we grow closer to God. What joy it must bring God to hear us say, “God loves me!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for calling us into deeper relationship with you. Amen.
