A sweet older lady sat in the middle of the sunlit room. Visitors gathered as she looked around the space lovingly. She spoke of the woman who lived there, and the children that woman raised.
One of the children was Billy Graham.
His mother’s caregiver and friend, this sweet lady had come to share stories at the old homestead (now a part of the Billy Graham Library.)
Calling a little child forward, she asked his name. Then she recited John 3:16.
“For God so loved JOHNNY, he sent his only son to die for him….”
She explained Mrs. Graham loved to recite the verse that way because “she wanted everyone to hear God’s love was for them.”
This lesson has grown, teaching me that knowing God’s love helps me love others. You’re welcome to read more over on Unlocking the Bible.
