Many things we love never love us in return.
Many people we love never love us in return.
This reality is why love is always a risk.
Except with God. Any love given to God is a response to Him loving us first.
During this fourth week of Advent, we focus on love. We have difficulty accepting a God who loves us for many different reasons, and it seems each person has a customized objection. Our understanding of God is complicated, and His love is not easy to comprehend. Divine love is hard to explain, but it is always accessible to receive.
Accept that God loves you, and it will color your life with beauty this week and beyond.
