Knowing that they are loved

“And every day Mordecai paced in front of the court of the women’s quarters, to learn of Esther ‘ s welfare and what was happening to her.” Esther 2:10

Do you think Esther had any doubt that Mordecai loved her?

Being given a piece of every single day just to find out how she was doing is a good indication that she was loved.

Because love is spelled:

T-I-M-E.

How do I know?

I have seen it.

I have felt it.

And I have watched the consequences of its lack.

Did you ever grow a seed in school?

When you are with everyone else and caring for it day after day it grew and flourished.

However once it went home there wasn’t anything to remind one of waterings.

When it out – grew the plastic cup there wasn’t anyone to suggest it be transplanted.

I remember looking down at the withered little plant and wondering what happened.

Well, neglect doesn’t help anything to grow,  including love.

People in the Bible are not perfect but Mordecai is a good example of how to let someone he loved know that they are loved.

He applied time and attention to her-
daily.

As the school year draws near and the schedule begins to fill up I am praying for clarity.

Clarity in priorities.

I want my family and friends to know that they are loved and I want to apply the time and attention to make this happen.
