God is the great King of truth, goodness, trueness, and love. (301-38, 1999.4.16)

Pledge number two of the Family Pledge also contains the phrase, “Our family… by centering on true love.” This signifies that nothing can be accomplished without true love. The next phrase is, “Our family… pledges to represent and become central to heaven and earth by attending God and True Parents; we pledge to perfect the dutiful family way of filial sons and daughters in our family.” This means that the father needs to practice the way of filial piety, as do the children. In fact, every member of the family needs to do the same. They need to inherit the tradition of filial piety. Pledge number two goes on to say, “We pledge to perfect the dutiful family way of … patriots in our nation, saints in the world, and divine sons and daughters in heaven and earth.”

God’s Grief

2. God’s Painful Struggle to Save Humankind

When man is sore troubled, the Shekhinah says, “How heavy is My head, how heavy is My arm.” If God suffers so for the blood of the wicked, how much more for the blood of the righteous.
    Mishnah, Sanhedrin 6.5 (Judaism)
 
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
    Matthew 23.37
    “In all their afflictions He was afflicted” (Isaiah 63.9). So God said to Moses, “Do you not notice that I dwell in distress when the Israelites dwell in distress? Know from the place whence I speak with you, from the midst of thorns [the Burning Bush], it is as if I stand in their distresses.”
    Exodus Rabbah (Judaism)
 
When Israel was a child, I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called My son.
The more I called them,
the more they went from Me;
they kept sacrificing to the Baals,
and burning incense to idols.
Yet it was I that taught Ephraim to walk,
I took him up in My arms;
but they did not know that I healed them.
I led them with cords of compassion,
with the bands of love,
and I became to them as one
who eases the yoke on their jaws,
and I bent down to them and fed them.
    Hosea 11.1-4
 
The Enlightened One, because He saw man-kind drowning in the great sea of birth, death and sorrow, and longed to save them, for this was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw the men of the world straying in false paths, and none to guide them, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw that they lay wallowing in the mire of the Five Lusts, in dissolute abandonment, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them still fettered to their wealth, their wives and their children, knowing not how to cast them aside, for this He was
moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them doing evil with hand, heart, and tongue, and many times receiving the bitter fruits of sin, yet ever yielding to their desires, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw that they slaked the thirst of the Five Lusts as it were with brackish water, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw that though they longed for happiness, they made for themselves no karma of happiness; and though they hated pain, yet willingly made for themselves a karma of pain; and though they coveted the joys of heaven, would not follow His commandments on earth, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them afraid of birth, old age, and death, yet still pursuing the works that lead to birth, old age, and death, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them consumed by the fires of pain and sorrow, yet knowing not where to seek the still waters of samadhi, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them living in an evil time, subjected to tyrannous kings and suffering many ills, yet heedlessly following after pleasure, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw them living in a time of wars, killing and wounding one another; and knew that for the riotous hatred that had flourished in their hearts they were doomed to pay an endless retribution, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because many born at the time of His incarnation had heard Him preach the Holy Law, yet could not receive it, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because some had great riches that they could not bear to give away, for this He was moved to pity.
 
Because He saw the men of the world plowing their fields, sowing the seed, trafficking, huckstering, buying, and selling; and at the end winning nothing but bitterness, for this He was moved to pity.
