A friend of mine said this (I’m pretty sure as a joke) this morning, but it got me thinking. What if people actually believe that God hates them? It’s a scary thought.
If God could hate, we would certainly be in a lot of trouble. I think there is a good chance, that if God could hate… he would hate us all or at least he could find a reason to… I mean he knows everything!
Fortunately God loves us all. That means that as you read this God loves you completely. He loves you more than your best friend, sibling, parent or spouse. He loves more than we could ever love.
It seems so strange that God can love us that much more than we love him… Even if we hate him, he loves us. That is not true for many earthly relationships.
To be loved not because of what we do, but in spite of it is definitely a treasure.
All those little things that ‘go wrong’ in a day happen BECAUSE God loves us. He is the director. In the same way movies work out in the end – in spite of all that ‘goes wrong’ for the characters- so too will our lives work out in the end if we just trust God.
