A Demonstration of Christ's Love

Ron Rand writes in For Fathers Who Aren't in Heaven: "Michael usually takes his family out each week to see a movie or sports event. When they come home, they make a fire in the fireplace and pop popcorn. During one of these evenings, little Billy made a real pest of himself in the car on the drive home, so he was punished by being sent to sit in his bedroom while the rest of the family had popcorn.

"After the family had the fire going and the popcorn ready, Michael went back to Billy's room and said, 'You go out with the others. I'll stay here and take your punishment.' Through Michael's action, the entire family experienced a vivid example of what Jesus did for everyone."
