God's Shameless Love

Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.

-- Nina Potts-Jefferies

I can see the wisdom of this in dating. It makes sense, too: Don't allow "Doormat" to be written on your back. But I'm glad God didn't treat me this way. I was a sinner bound for hell. I deserved it. I didn't live for God. But he made me a priority.
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person--though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die-- but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  (Romans 5:6-8 ESV)
I am grateful that God has no problem getting the short end of the stick.
