852 God Treats Man as His Dearest One
God created mankind;
whether man has been corrupted
or if they follow Him,
God treats mankind as cherished ones,
or as man might say, His dearest kin.
Mankind is no plaything for Him.
He is the Creator and man His creation.
It seems that rank is different,
but all God does for man
goes far beyond their relationship.
God loves mankind and cares for it,
and shows man due concern.
Tirelessly He gives to mankind,
never feels it’s extra work,
nor feels He needs the credit there.
He feels not that saving mankind,
supplying them and giving them all
is a great contribution.
It’s just that in His own way,
His essence, what He has and is,
He supplies mankind in quiet and silence.
No matter how much man gets from Him,
God asks not for credit.
It’s determined by His essence;
it’s true to His disposition.
