Here’s the honest truth: I’m a college basketball fanatic & in my opinion, the most wonderful time of the year is March Madness when 68 of the best college teams compete in a huge tournament that lasts almost three weeks. I’ve been watching March Madness tournaments for decades & my husband proposed to me during half time of a March Madness game.
Through a miraculous series of “coincidences”, I was able to go to the Final Four & championship game this weekend. And it was nothing less than THOROUGHLY EPIC!!!
What continues to astound me is the extravagant & logic defying love of God to me for getting to go to this event. March Madness has nothing to do with the Bible, nor helping babies whose moms are prostitutes or doing some kind of ministry. I thoroughly enjoy college basketball & getting to attend these games was entirely over the top – a massive expressions of genuine love to me that I didn’t earn, or deserve. And that’s how God loves us, full stop. We don’t deserve nor can we earn this love & yet God loves us with an extravagance & opulence that defies explanation. And all I can say is, “Thank You!”
God loves you w the same quality of extravagance & opulence, full stop 🙂
