THE QUINTESSENCE OF LOVE.

| No comment
This is an article I came across long time ago and put it down in my diary, which I happened to come by earlier this week. I hope you find it useful although I cant remember who the author is!

  • ·        Love functions more as a verb than as a noun. It is concerned more with doing than with feelings; actions define love.

  • ·        Love is not static, mirroring the god of Aristotle described as “divine thought thinking of itself.” Love should always be keen.

  • ·        Love must work in concrete deed. E.g.; the love of God is not aloof, withdrawn to the isolation of a distinct Olympus – He descends from the clouds, wooing and pursuing his people, showing up in the valley of the shadow of death, visiting the house of grief, adding a note of frolic in terms of celebration.



  • ·        Love, which is passive, only, is a dead love, indeed no love at all but a mere indulgence in warm feelings. Love is not born until the passive becomes active, the feeling moves to action as the heart moves the feet towards the house of the beloved.

  • ·        Loyal love embraces the “quality of mercy which is not strained.”

  • ·        “There is a love which covers a multitude of sins” (1 Peter 4:8). It speaks of a love, which is tolerant and patient, the kind that is willing to absorb the minor sin. It aims at the avoidance of pettiness or of picking at minute faults and weaknesses.

 This covering is not a form of indulgence of the sin or the criminal act.


  • ·        Love links to kindness, patience, protection, trust, hope, and perseverance. These touch the time factor of love. The stress is on its durable character, which is basic.

  • ·        Abiding love must be able to endure disappointments and being let down at points by people we count on.

  • ·        The judgement of charity is the evaluation of other people, tempered by love. It freely gives the benefit of doubt while fleeing the temptation towards heartless and cruel denunciations

  • ·        Do not adopt the worst-case analysis. Here, we overreact, thinking people mean to hurt us as badly as they do.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is best-case analysis. Here we attribute the best possible motives for an injurious action.


  • ·        Love means resisting the imposing of conditions on other people before we are willing to respect them.
