Sara and I reading some of the key conversations in THE SHACK in the mornings as she gets ready to leave for work at 6:30. This morning, we came across this:
“McKenzie, even if you had been to blame, her love is much stronger than your fault could ever be.”
What a way to start the day! I must have missed this little nugget in the eight or nine times I’ve read through this book. Or, at least it didn’t hit me in the same way, because I don’t recall seeing it before. Sure it’s talking about a daughter’s love for her father, but doesn’t this also reflect the love the Father has for each of us? Isn’t that so often missed in our religious attempts to get people to feel guilty or to work harder?
God’s love is much stronger than our faults could ever be!
Think about that. There is no failure, no place of brokenness in our lives that can separate us from the love that is so much stronger, so much more fathomless than any of us can conceive today. If we really, truly knew that we would know how to simply live in him today and enjoy his presence with us! I’m pretty sure that’s all he wants.
