Hosea 11:3-4
3Yet I [God] taught (the people of) Ephraim to walk, taking them by their arms or taking them up in My arms, but they did not know that I healed them. 4I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love, and I was to them as one who lifts up and eases [releases] the yoke over their cheeks, and I bent down to them and gently laid food before them.

1 John 3:1-2
1 See what [an incredible] quality of love the Father [God] has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him. 2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.

1 John 2:15-16
15Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father [God] is not in him. 16For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one's own resources or in the stability of earthly things]--these do not come from the Father [God] but are from the world [itself].

1 John 4:16
16And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God possesses for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

1 John 4:7-8
7Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know and understand God [to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him]. 8He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. James 1:18 18And it was of His [God’s] own [free] will that He gave us birth [as sons] by [His] Word of Truth

As James 1:18 explains, when God created you and chose you, when God called Himself your Father and lavished His love upon you, He used His free will.

Displaying His lavish generosity, God used His free will to give you free will.

When God gave you free will, He took a risk. He gave you the right to not love Him in return.

But then, love must be freely given, or it is not love.

Throughout your life, God has watched as others told you their wrong opinions and incorrect theories about whether God exists, or not, and who tell you they are sure that God is an angry Judge in the sky Who will strictly punish you each time you make a mistake.

How do you feel when you consider that God has allowed Himself to be misunderstood by you all these years?

1 Corinthians 13:12
12For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God].
