The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.
A man and woman in love have a gift of sight not granted to other people.
—The Enchanted Cottage
It is not that we keep His commandments first, and that then He loves; but that He loves us, and then we keep His commandments. This is that grace, which is revealed to the humble, but hidden from the proud.
The secret of Christian quietness is not indifference, but the knowledge that God is my Father, He loves me, I shall never think of anything He will forget, and worry becomes an impossibility.
It is not after we were reconciled by the blood of his Son that God began to love us, but before the foundation of the world.
Give a little love to a child, and you get a great deal back.
When I stand before the throne
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know
Not till then, how much I owe.
–R. M. McCheyne
