Most everything we know runs out, is in limited supply. Crude oil, trees, used Flannery O'Connor books on Amazon. Perveresely, this is what gives most things their value. Supply and demand. And not just things to be bought and sold. Things like friendship, quality time, nice shoes in my size. The fact that someone else might get it before I do heightens its value.

It's easy to take God's love for granted. In our earthly terms where value is determined by supply-level, God's love is valueless. God's love is not a pie. It's not cut into eight pieces, like everything else in this world. There's not a risk of running out. I can't understand it.
