Love Labors

"We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which Divine love may rest "well pleased." To ask that God's love should be content with us as we are is to ask that God should cease to be God: because He is what He is, His love must, in the nature of things, be impeded and repelled by certain stains in our present character, and because He already loves us He must labour to make us lovable."
