What a contrast the love of God is to the so-called “love” of our culture.
Our world loves you when you are young and beautiful; God loves you when you are old and not so attractive.
Our world loves you when you are famous and a celebrity; God loves you when you are unknown and a complete nobody.
Our world loves you when you are rich and powerful; God loves you when you are penniless and weak.
Our world loves the extraordinary. God loves the ordinary. People like you and me.
And God has demonstrated this love for us in a tangible way. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13 NKJV).
