Of all the qualities that God possesses, love is the most dominant one. He loves us so much that he gave his only begotten Son so that we may live. Life is what he purposed, not death. Soon he will swallow up death forever and remove all the things that causes pain and suffering. Until that time may each of you take comfort in him and in each other.
