Sometimes we think love has got to be that mushy stuff plastered on anniversary cards or whispered between folks who are Seriously Serious into that commitment thing (relationships, dating, marriage??) But, for all of us (single or not) there’s that Other Kind of Love that melts our hearts & molds our minds into beautiful beacons of Heavenly Light: GOD’S LOVE.
Last week in my stack of daily readers i was caught by inspiring thoughts from Søren Kierkegaard on this topic. Way back in University i studied this Danish theologian in an Existentialism class (somehow related to my German major?) – i remember reading his sentences many times to ‘get it’… The following, however, is quite easy to understand & definitely something my mind has munched on all week…
‘Tis probably a good idea to let our minds AND hearts munch on…
“This is all I have known for certain, that God is love. Even if I have been mistaken on this or that point, God is nevertheless love. If I have made a mistake it will be plain enough; so I repent – and God is love. He is love, not He was love, nor, He will be love, oh no, even that future was too slow for me, He is love. Oh, how wonderful! Sometimes, perhaps, my repentance does not come at once, and so there is a future. But God keeps no person waiting, He is love. Like spring-water which keeps the same temperature summer and winter – so is God’s love. His love is a spring that never runs dry.”
Søren Kierkegaard, (1813-1855)
from Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard
