God’s reason for taking us all to heaven is that He loves us. He…loves…us. Plain and simple. He doesn’t make exceptions for bad people because compared to Him we’re all bad anyway. He accepts us the way a mother accepts her children: as fragments of herself. Even when our behavior repulses Him, He looks beyond it to find the seed of worth that’s in each and every one of us. Also like a good mother, He lets us feel the consequences of our behavior – both here and in heaven. Therefore, we needn’t think of His love as a devil-may-care attitude toward the way we live. A loving mother knows how to be stern. But however stern she might be, such severity would never include shutting the door to her home forever.
