Lewis on the Love of God

“If God is Love, He is, by definition, something more than mere kindness. And it appears, from all the records, that though He has  often rebuked us and condemned us, He has never regarded us with contempt. He has paid us the intolerable compliment of loving us, in the deepest, most tragic, most inexorable sense.”  – C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain, pg. 33
