What does “loving” mean?

Just a short thought: imagine a parent with several children. But there is one child that is his or her absolute favourite. The other children will be punished when they diss him in any way. college tuition and other support will only be paid for this one child.

Would that one child think that his parent is “loving”?

And isn’t that how Christians see their God?

To make sure: This is meant as a serious question. If your first reaction is “idiot” I would be thankful for you to take the time and tell me where the metaphor goes wrong.
