I have family members and friends who love me and whom I also love, but our love is so much inferior to God's love for us. Here's how God loves us. He always listens to us, understands us perfectly, is sympathetic and most patient, never rushes to judgment, never points the finger at us, is faithful and trustworthy, ready to help always. Unlike us, his love is totally selfless and pure, the greatest. See how much he went through in order to save us. Strictly speaking, only he knows how to love, for we all fall short miserably. The least we could do is to accept his love, hoping that we'll learn how to love better. All human beings, being imperfect, are more difficult for us to love without his help. The Lord has to be the easiest person for us to get along with and love.
