LOVE FOR LOVE

I look at the Incarnation with awe when I see Jesus conceal His
Eternal Wisdom, Power and Majesty and assume human nature-not as
an adult, but as an Infant, totally dependent upon two of His
creatures.

What would make Him do such a thing? The only answer is Love
because only love is strong enough to overcome every obstacle. It
is difficult to think of His Majesty and Power as obstacles-and
yet they seemed to be. As God, there was no way to identify
Himself with me.

He knew I would often be tempted to look at Him and say, "How do
You know what it feels like to suffer pain, failure, weakness,
humiliations, hunger and thirst?"
