A father was tucking in his six-year old in for the night. “Son,” he asked, “when does Daddy love you the most? When you’ve been fighting with your sister and getting into a lot of trouble? Or when you’ve been helpful to Mommy and being real nice to everyone?”
“Right,” the father said, “and do you know why?”
“Cause I’m your special guy.” That was his daddy’s nickname for him: “Daddy’s Special Guy.” The boy knew his daddy loved him no matter what because he was Daddy’s special Guy.
God continually demonstrates His personal interest and love for us – simply because we are His children, His “special guys.”
