the miracle of god's love

Imagine if I locked my dog and my wife in the trunk of my car. After an hour, only one of them is going to be glad to see me. The dog’s love is unconditional, but it is ignorant. He doesn’t know what I’ve done. My wife’s love, on the other hand, is slightly more tenuous. She knows what I’ve done, and it can’t help but affect her feelings for me, at least for the moment. Perhaps we think God is like our dog, that He loves us as long as He doesn’t know what we’ve done. Or perhaps we think he is like our wife/husband, where He knows too much to feel good about us. The miracle of God’s love is that it is both. He knows us and He loves us. - David Zahl
