Most people think they possess the love of God because they love their spouse, family, friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ with whom they go to church. Jesus is challenging this thinking by questioning whether or not this is His true love because most all of these relationships are reciprocal. His love is nonreciprocal love. His, is a love that gives with no expectation of a payback; a love that gives just because it is the very nature of love to give. When we give with an expectation of reward or a gift in return, this really isn’t God’s love at all, because God’s love gives to all and doesn’t feel rejected if the recipient doesn’t give back.
