Reason to SMILE #75 – ONE SIZE FITS ALL
Imagine peering across a department store and spotting the cutest top you’ve ever seen. You must possess it so you make a bee-line for it. When you reach the rack from which it is hanging, you realize that the first shirt on the rack is too large. You look for a smaller size but they all appear to be the same. Then you check the tags. One Size Fits All. Your heart is broken because you must accept that your wardrobe will never be complete.
This is the story of my life. “One Size Fits All” does not fit me – ever. And in no way does this sizing method make me smile. Well… I take that back. The hilarity of the whole concept actually does make me laugh. It’s ridiculous. Who came up with this idea, anyway?
Despite my wardrobe woes, there is one thing that I am grateful uses the “One Size Fits All” sizing method. That is the Love of God. Yes! No matter who you are, no matter your shape, your weight, your height (or lack thereof), your sex, your color, God’s Love for you is a perfect fit. You’ll never find it too small. His love stretches to the farthest corners of creation to find you. You’ll never find it binding. His love frees us from the chains of sin allowing us to live life abundantly. You’ll never find it too baggy. His love nestles you in His strong arms keeping you safe and secure in His care.
God’s love is for you. God’s love is for me. God’s love is for everyone. One Size Fits All. There’s no better reason to SMILE!
