It’s easier to love God than to love people. Why? Because God is perfect. People are not (well, that’s debatable :)) God never fails. He doesn’t have bad breath. He doesn’t pass gas under the bed sheets. It’s much harder to love people than to love Him. But God says, “if you say you love Me then prove it by loving people.”
Why would God tell us this? Because people are God’s kids. If someone says they love Tori and me but they treat our kids poorly then they don’t really love us. You can’t love us and hate our kids. If you treat our kids bad then there’s no possibility of friendship with us. Why? Because they’re our kids!
How do we love God? How can we bless Him? By loving and blessing His kids. The best way you can bless Tori and me is to bless our kids. The same is true with God. Loving the unloveable (which is every human being at some point in time) is the key to loving the one who is the embodiment of love – Jesus.
A healthy marriage where two people choose to love each other unconditionally proves their love for God because they properly recognize God is not just our Father, He’s also our Father-in-Law – and He wants nothing more than for us to treat His son or daughter with lots of love!
