Joseph T. Larsen in one of his tracts tells of a minister who went to Philadelphia from Massachusetts. He later called up his wife at a cost of $1.35 just to tell her how much he loved her.
The wife was bewildered, wondering if he was sick. But, no, he simply wanted to tell her that he loved her still & to the extent that he could not wait until he came home.
Do you ever tell God how much you love Him? Does He ever see you go to any expense to prove it?
