15 Feb Malachi 1:2a

2a “I have loved you,” says the Lord. But you say, “How have you loved us?”

The Jewish people had returned to the Promised Land. They had rebuilt the temple and the walls around Jerusalem. They were ready for God to bless them. The people waited, but nothing happened. Sometimes their lives were hard and they wondered if God really loved them. Do you ever feel this way? How can you be SURE that God loves you?
