One thing I took from this, is that God really loves us like his own children. We would do anything for our children right? Some of us may even take a bullet for our children. God gave his only son Jesus as a ransom for our sins because he LOVED us so much. Imagine if you had to watch your child suffer in agony like Jesus did. You would be very tempted to put an end to it immediately. I believe God had to turn his back from his son because if he kept watching, he would not be able to follow through with it. I am not sure if it took me being a mother to understand this, but this example changed my perspective in the relationship God wants to have with us.
I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars!
