When the famous English poet Elizabeth Barrett (1806 - 1861) became the wife of Robert Browning, her parents disowned her because they disapproved of the marriage.

Their daughter Elizabeth, however, wrote almost every week, telling them that she loved them & longed for reconciliation.

After 10 years, she received a huge box in the mail that contained all the notes she had sent. Not one had been opened!

Although these "love letters" have now become a precious part of classical English literature, it's really sad to think that they were never read by Elizabeth's own parents.

Had they looked at just one, the broken relationship with their daughter might have been healed. (

The Bible is a collection of God’s love letters to man. It talks about how man, a fallen sinner, can be reconciled to the holy God. Unless we open the Bible and read, we will not know how to develop a relation with Him.

Rev 3:20 (GW) says: “Look, I'm standing at the door and knocking. If anyone listens to my voice and opens the door, I'll come in and we'll eat together.”
