How does love make sense?

"…love is only a glimpse or parable of an embracing, incomprehensible reality. It makes no sense at all because it is the eternal breaking in on the temporal.”
"...[we] forget that we are to love our enemies, not to satisfy some standard of righteousness, but because God their Father loves them." 

— Marilynne Robinson from her novel Gilead.
