But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8
I remembered when I was a lad and how the big brothers in my street use to go after any new girl that visits our street either on a short school break or festival break. They admire and appreciate this new girl until she becomes their "edible cake" and she becomes unappealing thereafter.
Love has no "if" or "because". love is unconditional & never seasonal. God's love for mankind have never been seasonal & conditional. We were of no use whatever to God before he let go his son for atonement of our sins.
If she comes around only on Valentine's day, and claims to love you only when you have goodies to offer...then it's not love. Love is not weather dependent but love is a continuous act. Love stays even when all the physical attractions are gone.
You can truly love when you encounter God; for God is love.- SUJ
