The other day I finished listening to "The wisdom of God". I absolutely so loved it, so much so that I invited my husband to listen too, so I could hear it for the second time together with him. He also enjoyed it a lot. For me it was an absolutely eloquent summary of the understanding of our heavenly Father and his only begotten Son, the story of creation, of us, what happened to us, and the essence of the Babylonian system that runs our world today. I really appreciate it when the information is compact. It sticks easier as to remember the message. I am so grateful for this little book.
In the light of my tenth wedding anniversary, I decided to (re)read this book. While the book focusses most on marriage relationships, the principles it presents are relevant to all of our relationships. This book answers the question of why human relationships are so often the source of frustration and pain and what the antidote for this is. In this book you will learn about Agape, which is the real love; the "original" love. Agape is perfectly reflected in the Father and Son relationship, and God's plan was for the beauty of Agape to also be reflected in the marriage relationship. You will learn how Satan marred it all by introducing "Eros", a selfish, false kind of love- making it the default type of "love" in human beings. You will also read how God has gone about to restore Agape in His people. As I read, I sometimes felt uncomfortable, as it's not pleasant to admit that we are by nature selfish, self-seeking and self-centered. But if you're willing to swallow your discomfort and read on, you'll find there's hope of restoration, and a renewed vision for your relationships. You won't view your marriage the same way after reading this and you will have gained a new appreciation of God, who is truly Agape.
