There is a worship song out now called Reckless Love.  When I first heard it, I was puzzled over the term reckless. How could that possibly describe God’s love? Reckless is a negative term, meaning careless and a lack of caution!  I chewed on this for a while and I thought about how careful and cautious we adults are in bestowing our love on others.  Then, I understood.  I love my family, I love those who love me and treat me kindly. I’m like the mothers who choose Jif peanut butter—I’m pretty choosy.  God isn’t.  He doesn’t hold back his love to see first if you’re worthy or if you’re going to return the love.  He doesn’t wait to see if you’re going to value and appreciate his love or treat it like the sidewalk litter you step over and disregard.  He disperses his love like a gardener slings out grass seeds over his lawn—with reckless abandon!  And no scripture confirms this any better than John 3:16. “For God so loved THE WORLD that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
