God is love. So love itself is unconditional and selfless. It’s the peace and it’s the purity, the key of godliness. It’s always benevolent in all its forms. Kind and gentle in all its moves . It spreads joy and healing. It carries the touch of heaven wherever it goes, as it’s the perennial river of soothing compassion, healing, forgiveness and acceptance. It’s all encompassing. Its something even the heaven and earth together or even the entire universe can’t ever define it or contain it completely. It encompasses and transcends even the eternity.
We always know and experience it partially within our limits and capacity in our entire life. Our capacity to love others depends on how much we know and love God, how much we are intimate with God. The more we know Him, the more we are familiar to love. Cause God is love.
The unified goal and purpose of all the trials of our life is to bring us closer to love, to make us more familiar to love, to increase our capacity to love others, to such great level which is beyond human capacity, which is not possible by our own in normal condition, without these trials. So their motto is always to burn our impurities and mold us into an embodiment of love, ultimately to shape us in the image of God. Cause God is love and we are His children, made in His image, meant to be like Him, meant to love others unconditionally, to serve selflessly.
And those who love more, serve better. Cause service is the prime duty of a human being as a human towards mankind, towards every fellow human and every creature. Only a life of service is a life worthwhile. And that service is incomplete without genuine love.
If we know God, we will know love, and we will know to serve.
