39 The Symbol of God’s Disposition
1. God’s disposition encompasses His comforting of mankind, hatred of mankind, love for mankind, and even more so, a thorough understanding of mankind. The disposition of God is one that belongs to the Ruler of the living beings among all things. His disposition is the symbol of the highest power. His disposition represents honor, power, nobility, greatness, supremacy. His disposition is the symbol of authority and all that is righteous, beautiful, and good. Moreover, it is a symbol of how God cannot be suppressed or attacked by the darkness and any enemy force, as well as a symbol of how He cannot be (and indeed is not allowed to be) offended by any created being.
2. God is forever supreme and ever honorable, while man is forever low and ever worthless. This is because God is forever making sacrifices and devoting Himself to mankind; man, however, forever takes and labors only for himself. God is forever laboring for the existence of mankind, yet man never contributes anything to the light or righteousness. Even if man labors for a time, it is weak and cannot withstand the slightest blow, for the labor of man is always for himself and not for others. Man is always selfish, while God is forever selfless. God is the source of all that is just, good, and beautiful, while man is the successor and expresser of all ugliness and evil, yet man can, at any time, betray righteousness and stray far from God. God will never alter His substance of righteousness and beauty. God will never alter His substance of righteousness and beauty.
