Ask God to open your heart and kindle in it a spark of his love, and then you will begin to understand what praying means.
Instead of allowing yourself to be so unhappy, just let your love grow as God wants it to grow; seek goodness in others, love more persons more; love them more impersonally, more unselfishly, without thoughts of return, never fear, the return will take care of itself.
All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.
In the triangle of love between ourselves, God, and other people, is found the secret of existence, and the best foretaste I suspect, that we can have on earth of what heaven will probably be like.
Samuel M. Shoemaker
Love the sinner, hate the sin? How about: Love the sinner, hate your own sin! I don’t have time to hate your sin. There are too many of you! Hating my sin is a full-time job. How about you hate your sin, I’ll hate my sin and let’s just love each other!
