No doubt Jean Anoulih was speaking of romantic love in these words: "Love
is, above all, the gift of oneself." But those words are also true of
Christian love. No doubt W. Somerset Maugham was speaking of romantic love when
he wrote, "The great tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they
cease to love." But those words are also true of Christian love. Christ
showed His love for us in the gift of Himself. We show our love for Him and His
Cause in the gift of ourselves. He will never cease loving us, and we must
never stop loving Him.
