The Power of love

The Power of love

POWER is NOT using your strength to harm something or someone weaker than you.

POWER IS using your strength in the effort not to hurt others.

POWER IS withholding your strength and expressing gentleness.

POWER IS being patient, and kind, and gentle, and forgiving.

POWER is NOT imposing your strength, or your will, against something or someone who is weaker or smaller than you simply because you can; POWER is NOT imposing your strength and will on another who is weaker because you love.

The greatest power in the universe is love. If you want power, learn how to love. If you want to be the most important of all, learn how to be the servant of all. (Mk. 10:43)
