God’s love is utterly humiliating

When God floods us with his love, it humiliates us because we thought we knew how to love. We find out that we knew nothing. God, in his generous mercy, rescues us from this profound ignorance. The spontaneous response is worshipful thanks.
And he does this humiliation completely out of mercy. He reveals the truth to us. The truth that sets us free.
