“those who are dear to You” (Psalm 60:5).
This is wonderful. We are dear to the Lord. Why are we dear to the Lord? Is it because there’s something special about us? No! It’s because God chooses to love us. He sees our many sins. He could have given up on us – but He hasn’t. He keeps on loving us. He loves us with the best love, the greatest love of all, the love that will not let us go.
