You may have seen and experience some measure of love from your earthly parents and others around you and it meant alot to you and you feel so special at times when you are shown some level of this love.
God made us for his pleasure for us to serve and worship him but there is something strange about this creator 's love for us, after all the purpose he made us for, he fell in love that he can't undo for man the creature he made to serve him, looking at it from a human point of view it is not normal but he is God he does love us from the depth of his heart.
Just imagine for a second the angels and the seraphim s passing and they saw God so quite and ask him what are you thinking about great master and God will answer and said man am thinking about man my love, they will be like haba God ( perplexed ) and say ,what is man God that you are mindful of him, man that is from dust and the father will be like you have not seen anything yet, the same man that disobey me and ran away from my presence I will go down and die to restore him to his position.
I strongly believe that all the heavenly being still wonders till date what man did to God for him to love him upto the extend of dying for him, this dimensions of love is so strange , imagine when you wrong God he will forgive you when you ask and act as if you never wrong him before.
love in it purest form is with God and he is the only one who can work that love through us to others, you think you are loving without him you fool yourself try to be loving including him in the equation you will experience what true love is, you will taste of it and there will be contentment and fulfilment.
Only through God can we love genuinely, outside of him your love is earthly and carnal.
