I wonder how God feels when people harm others, when someone plants a bomb intended to maim and hurt innocent lives and it goes off and people are killed and injured and forever emotionally scarred. Does God cry? Does God get angry? Does God despair, wondering why the people he created can’t live in peace?
I wonder if God does all of that, experiences all of those emotions because if he is perfectly divine he must be perfectly human too, and in the end perhaps all God can do is continue to love, continue to offer his wisdom, guidance, comfort and peace to all of us, through all of us, whoever we are, whatever we believe so that we can learn to love like him also, even in the face of despair.
God still loves. Even in the midst of sorrow and terror and suffering and man’s inhumanity to man, God still loves. And so can we.
