words? those three

The other day, I was reflecting on our use of the phrase "I love you" and asked for your thoughts. You cab read them in the comments here, but here's some picks.

The giving and receiving of love is the most precious thing we can do. There's nothing else that comes from the depths of our being and speaks about our humility.

Money is great

Things are useful

Food is amazing

Time is valuable

But if we give these things without love then we aren't doing anyone any favours, are we?

The challenge for me - and hopefully for you - today is what does it mean to say "I love you"? What does it mean to live "I love you". What does it mean to be loving even in the face of hatred, pain, suffering, anxiety or tears?
