Nothing can take the place of love in this life. We were created by love, in love and for love. Even babies are formed by the love of two parents. Love is a gift. It is a privilege for us as humans to be given opportunities to show love and acts of kindness. Love is indeed a miracle in itself.
The human heart was not made for hatred and darkness. Hatred destroys and leads to all sorts of mental instability. Love leads us into the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Love creates balance in the mind and the human heart has not yet comprehended all the benefits of living in love.
Love is a gift and we owe one another love. May God give us the grace to keep growing in love daily.
