The same is true with God, but infinitely more so. Obviously God possesses us: the Creator possessing the creation. That makes all the sense in the world. But, at the same time, there is something about God’s weakness in that his love for us causes him to do the most outlandish things, like sending his son, Jesus, not just to teach us, but to call us, to forgive us, to die for us. The Creator dies for his creation. That makes no sense whatsoever. But it does because God is God. That is why the relationship is so strange and mysterious. It seems like our very humanness, our weakness; our vulnerability draws God to us in an intensity we can’t comprehend. Keep your temper to yourself. Give your enthusiasm to all. Make people feel important. Meet people at their own level. Give the gift of heart. Forgive yourself if you fail. Be lavish with kindness; overwhelm people not with your power but with your charm. You will only learn to find happiness when you choose to let go of the things that keeps you hurting. May the peace of the Lord be with you always, Uncle Chuck.
