No taken... paradox or not. It is how Our God revealed himself to be. If Our God loves his creation..us..even if we be unworthy. How does our God know this love? A unitary being cannot know love. To love one has to be loved. Our God, Yeshua and Holy Spirit exist in all eternity in a community of love, It is Our Gods wish that we also be part of that community and know his love. I know Muslims do not like to hear the wishy washy concept of love in relation to Our God, but really it is his most powerful attribute because without love, there can be nothing. You just think of love as an emotion and compare with hate, greed, revenge etc and see which is the most powerful.
