Unconditional Love

Deuteronomy 4:9
“However, take care and be earnestly on your guard not to forget the things which your own eyes have seen, nor let them slip from your memory as long as you live, but teach them to your children and to your children’s children.”

God’s constant message to all people from the beginning of the bible to the end is: “I love you.” There are no strings attached. But the people seem to have short memories…easily forgetting God’s fidelity and care…slipping away to worship other idols. Sound familiar? It should because, of course, it’s our story…and everyone’s story. People continue to give their allegiance to other idols today. We all…at least on occasion if not more…give a higher priority to pursuing power, prestige, possessions, wealth…or some craving…than we give to honoring God with our lives. But as we see in the bible, God does not abandon us…no matter how many times we turn away. Just so we can’t miss this message…Jesus allowed Himself to be thoroughly rejected… crucified…and then while hanging on the cross…He forgave us…even when no one had asked to be forgiven! That is unconditional Love. It’s the love God has for you and me. Let us remember this…and pass it on!
