Throughout history, God has been depicted variously as a judgmental tyrant, a grand conciliator, and even as a rather low-key comic, portrayed by the cigar-smoking George Burns in the movie aOh God!a The question thatas begging to be answered is: Who is God? This devotional evolved out of one personas desire to portray God in a truer light. In the Book of Job, God reprimanded Jobas friends for failing to speak truthfully about Him. They misrepresented His character. Job, on the other hand, understood His Maker and was, therefore, the single voice of truth in an otherwise corrupt world. Can you honestly say that you know your Creator? Can you speak truthfully about Him? This devotional will help you get to know the real God, who is neither the judgmental tyrant nor the light-weight movie character. He is, if nothing else, a God of love and compassion. At the conclusion of your devotionals, I have formulated a aLove Quotienta (L.Q.) test to measure the depth of your love. The questions are designed to be thought-provoking and insightful. You may also find them a bit daunting and uncomfortable. Answer each question according to your beliefs. There are no wrong or right answers. It is my hope youall find this little exercise revealing and instructive of how you love. The answers and Key is also included. Your heart is what youare all about. May you understand Godas love for you.What is particularly moving about this story is how the Author of Love made something good out ofa bad situation. Goda#39;s love was shown to hagar and her son Ishmael. God in his ... love to us. God knows the end from the beginning of your life.
