Unconditional Love is Who God is.

1 Samuel 8:6-7

Samuel was displeased when they asked for a king to judge them. He prayed to the Lord, however, who said in answer: “Grant the people’s every request. It is not you they reject, they are rejecting me as their king.”

It is the same story repeated throughout thousands of years.

The sons and daughters of God reject the God who made them.

They again and again choose gods of power, prestige and possessions instead.

They…or should I say we…choose to place ourselves at the center of the universe.

Each of us mistakenly believes that we…our individual egos…are the center of all that is.

God allows this…allows us to choose.

But this is not so that we can feel God’s wrath and punishment…but so that we can experience the loving embrace of a God who loves unconditionally.

What better way to be transformed by Love…than to reject the One who loves us…and in return be loved anyway!

This is a Love that causes our hearts to melt…and to then yearn to serve such a wondrous God with our lives.
