Love and understanding have similar roots –
However, since God remains largely unknowable by the human mind,
God, generally, is revealed to us through love –
Which is why, in providing such direct access to God, love is so treasured.
Human beings have a potential to love
Infinitely greater than they’re able to rationally comprehend.
Love is like possessing a pair of “spiritual” glasses –
When you put them on,
You understand everything in a new and different light –
That is, you start seeing – just like God does.
Reminds me of something I just read: “Love cannot be born of mere determination; through the exercise of will one can at best be dutiful… Love is essentially self-communicative; those who do not have it catch it from those who have it.
