God knew.

Even before God created the earth, He knew He would form man and woman.

He knew that these creations would, one day, betray Him.

Despite the fact that He knew this, He still created us with the ability to choose ... free will.

It's hard for me to wrap my mind around that because, if I'm God, which I am far from, I would have just decided against the whole thing.

But, I started thinking ... why would anyone want to force someone to love them?

I want to be chosen to love.

God wants us to choose Him. He doesn't want to force us to love Him. What joy is in that?

In thinking about my own kids, I want them to want to love me, want to spend time with me, obey me, worship me ... ok, maybe not that, but you get my drift.

I would never want them to be forced to love me, but to choose to love me on their own.

Same with God.

He knew and yet He still created, still loved, still sought, still waits.

He amazes me.

I'm so glad he's God and I'm not!
