Love – sacrificial, caring love – is the greatest power in the world. It abolishes hate. It brings people together in caring communities. It provides he pathway to unity. It provides the power to bring couples together and to produce children in caring families, and it offers the support of relatives and friends.


On the wider community level, it offers peace between nations and cultures and provides a mutually compatible relationship between humans, animals and the resources of nature. It eliminates warfare. It is expressed in the care of animals. It makes it possible for people to labor together to create buildings of beauty and sturdiness. It provides the foundation of human endeavors, which permit the exploration of the seas and the skies.


Loving and caring for oneself is also essential to living at one’s best. Possibly the most exciting and satisfying element of love is expressed in the intimate, physical experiences in the sexual relationship of mating, but only when it is mutually sought and enjoyed.


There are several kinds of love, that of lovers, that in the everyday working of couples in marriage, that of a parent for a child, that of laying one’s life down for a friend, and that spiritual love exchanged between God and his worshipers.
