Life of Love

I mentioned the other day how the library delivered A Purpose Driven Life to my doorstep.  And how many years ago I had stumbled upon the book but just wasn't quite at a point I could appreciate the messages of the book.  

For some reason today I feel compelled to share some of the my favorite words from Chapter 16 about love.   I felt inspired when I heard these words, and thought maybe others would as well. 

Life is all about love.....

Love should be your top priority, primary objective, and greatest ambition.


"No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love."  

Relationships, not achievements or the acquisitions of things, are what matters most in life.


Love leaves a legacy.  How you treated people, not your wealth or accomplishments, is the most enduring impact you can leave on earth. 


Mother Teresa said "It's not what you do, but how much love you put into it that matters"


It's about giving our eyes, ears, time, attention, presence, and focus.  Nothing can take the place of that.   Whenever we give our time we are making a sacrifice, and sacrifice is the essence of love.


The importance of things can be measured by how much time we are willing to invest in them.  The more time you give to something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you.   The greatest gift you can give someone is your time.

The best use of life is love.  The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.


"These three things continue forever: faith, hope, and love.  And the greatest of these is love"
