An evangelist wrote about a wise physician who told a young doctor, "I've been practicing medicine for a long time. I've prescribed many things. But in the long run, I've learned that the best medicine is love."
"What if it doesn't work?" asked the young man.
"Double the dose," replied the doctor.
If things are tense at home, if you're having trouble with a loved one, if someone has insulted or hurt you, love them anyway. And if that doesn't work, double the dose.
