God's LOVE and man's love can NOT be compared. It is the difference between day and night.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believs in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Mankind wouldn't give his only son for nobody, but rather takes/abducts a son from others. Man's love is to "self", rather than towards God.
But Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. Psalm 86:15
The above Psalm proves God's love. How far reaches human compassion, grace, long-suffering, mercy and truth in comparing with that of God? Perhaps 1 inch of the length of the "road" to heaven... and how long is that? Man's love does not reach out to God, because their love is defiled and corrupt.
But God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Man's love may go as far as to the ones who show him love, but more often NOT that far even. Love towards God shows weakness, they say. But Love is revealed through forgiveness.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12
...having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; Colossians 2:13b,14
Human nature is not forgiving, rather holding wrongs against one another and against God.
Mankind blames and curses God for everything under the sun. When the car won't start, when the house burns down, when the meals are not ready in time, when losing the lottery etc. And when there is damage from an erupted vulcano, tornado, or sunami they say: "This is an act of God."
Which imagine mischief in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war. They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah. Psalm 140:2,3
There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Romans 3:11-14
The love of Christ: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Remember, God loves us unconditionally with an everlasting love, mankind is the exact opposite.
Love In Christ,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
