SO much talk
A great deal of it empty
About this pivotal human trait
More important is the question
‘Do I act out of love?’
The focus of love is on the other.
Its focus is on giving not receiving.
Whether it is intimate love, love of humanity or love of creation
If love flows through my actions,
Then goodness radiates from those actions.
Relationships and communities are built and strengthened.
Right relationships and justice draw closer
And God’s reign is glimpsed
