Contemplating Valentine’s Day, and I ran across this:
“For one human being to love another human being; that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is mere preparation.” Rainer Maria Wilks.
I like that thought, that love is “the work for which all other work is mere preparation.” That the actualization of that thought has its difficulties does not make it any less true. Which of course takes me back to yesterday’s thought in 1 Cor. 13:13: “And now these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest is love.” Maybe Paul was correct after all.
