For Meditation: that He should find His joy in our love

From my morning reading, Hughson's With Christ in God.

"It is no wonderful thing that I, knowing what God is, knowing how gracious He has ever been to me, and conscious of the blessings that He is continually preparing for me, should love Him, and thirst for Him, as for the One in whom alone I can find ultimate satisfaction and joy.  But it is a wonder beyond our knowing that He, knowing us, and how we have wounded Him and offended Him, and how we shall again and again do Him the same despite, should love us; and more than this, that He should desire that we love Him; and that He should find His joy in our love, and His grief in our neglect of Him."  (51-52).
