#31DaysOfRealLove – Day 28

As a parent, it is my job to look out for my child. To keep him safe, be mindful of his needs and even protect him from himself at times (he is only 3). My love for my son is unconditional, to the point that I am willing to endure unforeseen pain to make sure he is taken care of. But I would never sacrifice my child’s life for someone else’s.

It always leaves me in awe when I think of how God, whose foresight is eternal, decided that we were worth the pain of sacrificing His Son, knowing that we do not always understand what love is and are intentionally unloving towards Him . ┬áThat is the reality of true love, it is given even when a person can’t or won’t give it back.

Grace and peace

For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16 esv
