Why is there love in the universe anyway?

Why is there love in the universe anyway?

Take nothing. Explode it into a universe of hydrogen and some helium. Condense and reignite it in stars. Fuse heavier atoms and explode some stars. Get some planets of the right size and zone. Evolve some life. What do you we get?

Around here we get people who care about right and wrong, who love and are loved, and many who seek the deepest truths and the greatest salvation for all.

It is amazing that there is anything instead of nothing. It is astounding that the universe should be comprehensible at all. It is mind boggling that life, consciousness, morality, and spirituality are an emergent quality of the universe.

To have a universe at all is a miracle. To be able to be conscious of it is a double miracle. And that love is an emergent quality of our consciousness is a triple miracle.

“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” 1 John 4:16

Would you just stop a minute, and let yourself be amazed and blessed by this reality?

Go ahead. It will be medicine for your soul.
