STOP AND THINK – Love is not automatic. It takes conscious practice and awareness, just like playing the piano or golf. (Uncertain source)

You may enjoy music and sports, but participating with skill takes serious practice. Likewise, while we may respond pleasurably to an attractive person or develop emotional feelings for a friend, true love has to be cultivated. Genuine love seeks the best interest of the one you love. And, because it takes practice, everyone you meet can be your practice session.

Serve one another humbly in love. (Galatians 5:13)
