    If you have love you don't need anything else, if you don't have love nothing else matters. :jesus:

    I guess you could replace JESUS with the word love and it would be true, although that's about the same thing, isn't it?

    Love is very important. True love. It makes us hold back from hating when we are severely wronged, or seeking revenge in like manner as the way we were treated. One can take almost anything with a good degree of grace if they have biblical love in them.

    It's a lesson I learn more and more as I grow in Christ. It becomes a wry amusement to watch my enemies try to batter against me, and pretty fruitlessly, not realizing what a great impact the love of Jesus has had on my inner being. I sure have my moments, but they sure are greatly decreased because of love.

    Great thought!
