Unconditional Love

The whole basis of the Father’s love is its unconditional nature. God loves because He is God and not because of anything we do or fail to do. It is sad that we can make statements like if we do something nice in the world then God does something nice for you. This sounds strikingly like blackmail or extortion. This is such a gross disservice to our Father.
We have been mired in the organizational and worldly ways of acting and understanding for so long that they have clouded our thinking. As a result of this muddled thinking we can’t seem to come beyond our worldly understanding. This is not to say that our actions don’t have consequences. Everything we do has some sort of repercussion---good or bad. Make no mistake about this; the Father will let us deal with the consequences of our actions. This is not a question of rewards and punishments but rather the actions of a loving parent. If we don’t have to deal with the consequences of our actions we will never have any opportunity to learn and grow from these situations and circumstances (both good and bad).
