A New Commandment

I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. ~Jesus

God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God and God in them. ~1 John 4:16

What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want.
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like. ~St. Augustine

Love is a sacred reserve of energy;
it is like the blood of spiritual evolution. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. ~Buddha

There are four questions of value in life…
What is sacred?
Of what is the spirit made?
What is worth living for?
And what is worth dying for?
…The answer to each is the same. Only love. ~Johnny Depp
