THE WONDERFUL EFFECT OF DIVINE LOVE: THOMAS A KEMPIS
"Love is a great thing, yea a great good; alone it makes every burden
light and bears evenly all that is uneven. For it carries a burden which is
no burden; and makes all bitterness sweet and palatable."
From the Fourth Book of The Imitation of Christ
It is sometimes surprising what a person in love can do. In real life, there are true
stories of sacrifice and endurance of a lover. He will go to great lengths to make
his beloved happy.
Thomas A Kempis, a great saint allude that this human love has its relationship with
agape, Divine Love. God is the Source of all. God is love. The human love that
people express to one another is only an offshoot of Divine Love. "For God so loved
the world that he sent His Beloved Son into the world to die for our sin." Jn 3:16
