Joy in Loving

It is in loving, not in being loved,
The heart is blest.
It is in giving not in seeking gifts
We find our final quest.
If thou art hungry, lacking heavenly food,
Give hope and cheer.
If though art sad and couldst be comforted
Stay sorrow’s tear.
Whatever be thy longing and thy need,
That do thou give.
So shall thy soul be fed, and thou indeed
Shall truly livest in joy. 

Colossians 3: 18 & 19 "Wives be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be embittered against them."
2 Peter 1:7: “And in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, Christian love.”
I Peter 4:8: “Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.”
Jude 21:21 “Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.”

Deuteronomy 6:5 & 6: “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” “And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.”
