Monday’s Meditation

Out of his love for a broken and defiant world, God gives.  He gives this gift.  It’s a little strange.  Don’t we normally give gifts to celebrate an achievement or to mark a joyous occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or something along those lines?  Occasionally we give a gift after a misdeed, as when a man sends flowers to a woman as a peace offering for some failing on his part.           

            But here, the innocent and offended party is the one who gives the gift.  God has done nothing wrong, nor have we achieved anything worth celebrating.  God looks at his rebellious creation, defined by its resistance to him, and what does he do?  He gives a gift, the Gift.”    God So Loved, He Gave by Kelly M. Kapic with Justin Borger (page 69)
