  2. Emeasoba George:

    God does not show love to us only when we have done perfectly well. Rather, he (God) loves us, even when we make mistakes and fail. Now, that is a perfect example of a true love, which can melt the hardest heart, heal the wounds of the so called broken hearted and even calm down a furious heart. And permit me to tell you this. That's equally the kind of love that we all ought to portray and share among one another. Yes! you heard me right and this is a call to love everyone unconditionally and never conditionally. -Emeasoba George
