Our Unfaithfulness vs. God’s Faithfulness

I could post this once a week, but here it is anyway, as if today is worse than any other.

How can God continue to forgive and love his people when we act so hateful towards him? Derek Webb wonders this in his own unique way:

So could you love this bastard child
though I donĂ¢??t trust you to provide,
with one hand in a pot of gold
and with the other in your side? *
I am so easily satisfied
by the call of lovers less wild
that I would take a little cash
over your very flesh and blood…

* Reference is to John 20:27.
