attention, a helping hand, a present, a financial
contribution, a visit ... all these are little steps toward love.
Each step is like a candle burning in the night. It does not take the darkness away, but it guides us through the darkness. When we look back after many small steps of love, we will discover that we have made a long and beautiful journey.
"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for the one who loves others has fulfilled the law. Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." - Romans 13: 8, 10 (NIV)
