Which kingdom would we have: one based on conditional love or one based on unconditional love?


Consider the kingdom you have made and judge its worth fairly. Is it worthy to be a home for a child of God? Does it protect his peace and shine love upon him? Does it keep his heart untouched by fear, and allow him to give always, without any sense of loss? Does it teach him that this giving is his joy, and that God Himself thanks him for his giving? That is the only environment in which you can be happy. You cannot make it, any more than you can make yourself. It has been created for you, as you were created for it. God watches over His children and denies them nothing. Yet when they deny Him they do not know this, because they deny themselves everything. You who could give the Love of God to everything you see and touch and remember, are literally denying Heaven to yourself. T-7.XI.3:1-11

We have made the world of conditional love but the Kingdom of God is a kingdom of unconditional love. The world we have created of conditional love fills us with fear and guilt while the Kingdom of unconditional love fills us with peace and bliss.

In Unitarian Universalism some of us join together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is based on unconditional love of God’s creations.

Today it is suggested that we consider which kingdom we would have: one we have made based on conditional love or the kingdom of God based on unconditional love?
