Two Kinds of Love - C. S. Lewis
There are two kinds of love: we love wise and kind and beautiful people because we need them, but we love (or try to love) stupid and disagreeable people because they need us. This second kind is the more divine because that is how God loves us: not because we are lovable but because He is love, not because He needs to receive but He delights to give.

BibleGateway.comThe free online
website offers many Bible translations, and is a great tool to look up
many verses by either book reference or topical by word search. There
are also various daily email devotionals that you can sign up for. I
signed up for the C. S. Lewis Daily Readings, which pulls a thought from
one of his many books. The reading for today was great. - Pastor Janie
