    Does God "owe" anything to humanity?

    If God created us, do we DESERVE to receive anything from him? Or is anything he gives us completely an undeserved gift?

    This is like asking "Since I gave birth to my children do I owe them anything" So if there is a God he/she/it owes as much as any other parent owes their children.

      Beautiful, peeples. And you hit the nail on the head with this one.

      God owes us His love and He gives it gladly. Only it's not for the bodies we wear only so briefly. It's for the children who look like Him, within us

    No he does not own anything to us?  So that is an undeserved gift.

    God does not owe us nothing, but we do deserve what he promises us or he would not allow us to receive gifts from above.

    No. We are owed nothing by God. He has given us life. Plus he has given his son Jesus Christ to be crucified so that if we accept him into our hearts we will be saved to an eternal life in Heaven. God has by far done enough.

      And yet, this "parent" of ours has an infinite supply of everything. If we only were to awaken and ask, He would give it gladly. Too many attempt to ask as ego or Homo sapiens. God does not reply to rocks.

    God owes us His love and He gives it gladly and unconditionally. For He is Love.

    God has an infinite abundance of love.

    Only by our turning away from Him and becoming separate, did we give up love. By separateness (ego), we came to see love only dimly and incompletely.

    By being separate (ego), we lost our ability to take 100% responsibility, thus we were capable of becoming victims and capable of blaming others.

    I have seen this love and this responsibility. And miracles were suddenly effortless. I felt the warm embrace of the Heavenly Father, but then I grew afraid and lost the connection. Ever since that afternoon 36 years ago, I have hungered for that love. And I have been working on a way to allow that love more completely so that I would never waver again.

    Imagine His joy when we awaken as spiritual beings, losing our attachments to this ego and this body. Even if we still live as humans for a few years longer, He would be overjoyed at having one of His children back and awake.
