Much has been written about the unchanging love that God has for his creation.
When we think about this, it’s natural to feel gratitude. The Divine One, the Universe, is imbued with a love ethic, with a bias, if you will, for compassion and ever-steadfast love.
When we feel this in our souls and are thankful for God’s love and favor, we keep faith with a community of women and men through the ages who’ve meditated on this and felt that spontaneous burst of thankfulness, a blossoming in the hearts of those who feel that love and benevolence and respond to it.
The Psalmist captures well that sentiment here in verses 9 and 10 of the 57th Psalm:
9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;from Psalm 57
I will sing of you among the peoples.
10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Do you feel the love today?
God loves each one of us. Unconditionally.
It’s natural to feel gratitude as we reflect on this.
And to recommit ourselves to spreading the love as we go about our lives each day.
