“If love is the soul of Christian existence, it must be at the heart of every other Christian virtue”

If love is the soul of Christian existence, it must be at the heart of every other Christian virtue. Thus, for example, justice without love is legalism; faith without love is ideology; hope without love is self-centeredness; forgiveness without love is self-abasement; fortitude without love is recklessness; generosity without love is extravagance; care without love is mere duty; fidelity without love is servitude. Every virtue is an expression of love. No virtue is really a virtue unless it is permeated, or informed, by love.

 

This was written by my Dear Freind Marv Boone ears ago to his beloved wife Shirley. Marv passed into the arms of JESUS several years ago.

To My Treasured Wife….

You are the happiness in my life

as the year begins anew

When God created woman

He must have thought of you.

You are so very special

the best of a chosen few

When God created woman

He must have thought of you.

Happy New Year  My Darling Wife,

All My Love

You Adoring Husband
