Psalm 145:9

The LORD is good to all, compassionate to every creature.

To try to understand the love of God is really impossible.

It is SO immense.

It is infinitely beyond any love we could experience as human beings.

This is the message of the overwhelming majority of those who have had a “Near Death Experience.”

It underlines the truth of the scripture that simply states, “God is love” (1 John 4:8).

God’s love doesn’t punish but restores.

It is demonstrated by Jesus in his telling of the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

When the young son returns to his father after taking his inheritance and squandering it all, the father doesn’t scold or punish that son.

Instead, he runs to him, hugs him, and throws a party for him.

People have such a hard time accepting such a magnanimous God because I think people want to believe that God will punish those who have carried out great evil.

But Jesus says we must forgive an infinite number of times (Matthew 18:21-22).

If we must do it, then certainly God also does.

Allow the truth of God’s unconditional love to pour over you.

Allow that love to bathe you in Eternal Light.
