Real love is putting the best interest of the other party first. We see this in the way God loves us. He knows that we were created for the sole purpose, to love HIM with our WHOLE heart, mind, soul and strength. He does everything He can to fulfill that goal. Nothing, in that goal, implies anything that is earth bound – like good things on earth. Anything we get that is good on earth should be considered a present from our lover, and is to be used to achieve our main goal of loving God. This also implies that anything that is not good should be to help us love God. That is our goal and we should be working to achieve that goal. If we are not working to achieve that goal, God does not owe us anything here on earth. He may offer something as a present to show His love of us. But that is not what He owes us. So let us work to share His love with Him and others. So He may give us the best here on earth and with Him as a spirit/soul forever.
