  • "The Lord loves you. He knows your hopes and your disappointments. He will not forget you because your pains and your suffering are continually before Him.

Therefore, “despise not … the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him: for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth.”"

Yes, our blessings multiply as we share His love with our neighbor."
