I have found that if you love life, life will love you back. (Arthur Rubinstein, noted concert pianist)

There are many similar sayings: “Love makes the world go ’round.” “All the world needs now is love…” As Rubinstein suggests, if you have a loving attitude toward others, you will likely receive a kind, loving response. But love is such a misunderstood thing. It’s more than an emotion or a feeling. It ought to be our motivation to act toward others for their good.

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere (James 3:17).
