I heard an interesting question the other day. It was about whether or not our love for God is conditional or not. As I sat there I began to think.
There have been many conditions that I have given to God to try and get Him to prove Himself to me. Over time, the conditions have changed and at this point, I’m happy to say that I don’t think that I have any, but I thought that I would just write a list to show you guys some of the conditions that I have given God. I pray that one day we will get to a point where our love for God is truly unconditional.
