I believe God does not love us equally, He loves us uniquely.
I didn’t understand this until my third child. For a parent, love is not divided. Love multiplies. Each of my children awaken my motherly love in a different and unique way.
My children couldn’t be any more different and the incredible thing is that one child is often the opposite another. Jo’s maturity. Bub’s joy. Lenny’s independence. Little girl’s need for attachment. So different, so unique to each one.
God as our Father doesn’t have a simple love for us, He is love for us and in love with us. A love that is infinite, limitless, and unique. Today, I am thankful for a Father that doesn’t compare children, but celebrates the differences each brings to the family.
As women and parents, it’s hard not to fall into the trap of comparison. The society is constantly drawing us into comparison. Every time you are tempted to compare yourself with another, remember this- “God does not love us equally, He loves us uniquely.” You are special and an important member of the body of Christ. Your gifts are unique and you are precious in His sight.
Oh wow! He loves us uniquely not equally. I was talking to hubby the other night about how I selfishly don’t want another baby because I don’t want to share the love I have for my son. I told him I don’t think I can love them equally. This puts my heart at ease that I can love uniquely not equally.
The other day I was thinking of having a lot of children so we can have more people to deal with the devil. I agree with Serena, God loves us uniquely.
Great way to think of it, I love this:)
