Love is the Currency. Let It Flow...

“Beloved,let us love one another,for God is love;and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God,for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

Today’s reflection is based on a poem “Love Is the Currency”.

It deals with the value of love and how it is always best to let love flow without “pulling the plug” on that flow because we may not be getting compensated for our good deeds and pure efforts. I’ll be the first to admit that receiving timely and lucrative pay is important.Everyone is entitled to make a decent living and should be fairly compensated for their hard work and energies.

In etymology, the science and study of languages such a digression would be back to the time of cuneiform many thousands of years ago, when writing was done on clay tablets.

Oh well, maybe I will …
