“Love is holy because it is like grace— the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.”

Luke 10:31-32

“I shall leave you to make all the excuses you like about not helping the poor or aiding the hospitals, and when you have made them they will be as good as those which I have set before you. You have smiled over what the priest might have said, but if you make any excuses for yourselves whenever real need comes before you, and you are able to relieve it, you need not smile over your excuses, the devil will do that; you have better cry over them, for there is the gravest reason or lamenting that your heart is hard toward your fellow-creatures when they are sick, and perhaps sick unto death.”

Charles Spurgeon
