I love this quote as it embodies all that we we could be for one another. Here I’m not just referring to love between a man and a woman, but love between siblings, a son and a father a mother and a daughter, a father and a daughter and mother and a son, love between friends etc…..
It is love that brought us here. God loved us first, there is nothing you have to do to earn God’s love because He loves us unconditionally, it is for love that Jesus gave his sacrifice.
Verse 13 in Corinthians says…
8 Love is eternal. There are inspired messages, but they are temporary; there are gifts of speaking in strange tongues, but they will cease; there is knowledge, but it will pass. 9 For our gifts of knowledge and of inspired messages are only partial; 10 but when what is perfect comes, then what is partial will disappear.
11 When I was a child, my speech, feelings, and thinking were all those of a child; now that I am an adult, I have no more use for childish ways.12 What we see now is like a dim image in a mirror; then we shall see face-to-face. What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete—as complete as God’s knowledge of me.
So if love is not your motivating factor in your everyday, then nothing falls into place.
