Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: May 20, 2016

God chained himself to Israel.  Because the Jews were lovable?  No.  “God wasn’t attracted to you and didn’t choose you because you were big and important – the fact is, there was almost nothing to you.  He did it our of sheer love, keeping the promise he made to your ancestors” (Deuteronomy 7:7-8 The Message).  God loves Israel and the rest of us [inadequate ones] because he chooses to.  “This is the love that won’t let go of the object of love.”
