The prophet Hosea reminds us today (Hosea 11:1-4 ,8e-9) that the history of mankind is a story of unrequited love – God loving man but man not loving Him in return. God has given us every thing we need. Yet, the more we receive the less grateful we have become. Despite our ingratitude and our failure to love Him as we ought and in a manner our God deserves, He still loves us. He went to the cross, suffered and died for us, knowing that far too many of us would never appreciate His sacrifice or benefit eternally from it. Oh, that we would love Him as unconditionally as He loves us!
