Before a child was born, the parents-to-be will get prepare for its arrival;
After the child was born, the parents will love the baby with all their hearts;
They will try to provide the best to the child through his/her life;
When the child behaves inappropriately, the parents will discipline the child and forgive the child;
It won’t stop there, the parents will continue to guide the child, because of their unconditional love towards the child. But,
did the child know about the love before the birth? NO
did the child know about the love when he/she was still an infant? NO
did the child understand how deep his/her parents’ love to him/her? MOST PROBABLY NOT
would the child’s parents think twice before loving their child? NO
would the child’s parents love the child less, just because their inappropriate behaviours? NO
God loves the world – whoever we are, whatever we had done – He still loves us.
Just like how parents loving their kids, even when the kids did not know the parents’ existing. With no questions ask, parents love and provide their kids.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice of our sins. ~ I John Chapter 4 verse 10
