How to write a love letter

If you google “How to write a love letter,” 
you’ll find these kinds of tips:

  1. RealLoveLetterUse nice stationery and write it by hand. Hire a calligrapher if you must.
  2. Open intimately. Don’t use a formal salutation. 
  3. Recite virtues of your beloved. Use key words like “angelic,  darling, beautiful, elation, happy, complete, adoring, heart…”
  4. Carefully craft the closing. Don’t simply end, “Love, Lisa.”
  5. Insert something special in the envelope (flower petals, a spritz of perfume, etc.).

So how does God stack up on this?

He wrote us a very long love letter (66 books long).

  1. He used materials with enduring quality, with scribes meticulously copying the copies for posterity for thousands of years.
  2. He addresses us as beloved, friends, children, sons and daughters.
  3. He attributes to us perfect qualities, the exact qualities of Jesus!, so we can be called righteous.
  4. He promises us grace and peace and love and mercy for all eternity.
  5. He inserted His very Son into our world along with His letters as a true guarantee and proof of His love.

No one can match His letters.  
But I write Him anyway.
I have nothing to offer...but me.
