The Lord said, “I have loved you.” 

Malachi 1:2

Father, your love never ceases.  Never.

Though we spurn you, ignore you, disobey you, you will not change. 

Our evil cannot diminish your love. 

Our goodness cannot increase it. 

Our faith does not earn it anymore than our stupidity jeopardizes it. 

You don’t love us less if we fail. 

You don’t love us more if we succeed.

Your love never ceases.
