One of the early Christian Fathers of the Church, Clement of Alexandria, says at one point that human love is always tending to slip back into the love of what is common among people.
But there’s nothing, he goes on to say, there’s nothing in common between God and the world.
So God’s love for the world is extraordinary. Without cause, absolutely free, absolutely, overwhelmingly unreasonable.
And that’s the kind of the love we are invited to become part of.
