Write to Joyce
We know we found something of infinite worth, when for the sake of it, we stop counting the cost of our efforts and we start to give everything else away. – Jocelyn Soriano
Recent times have taught us to weigh the cost of almost everything. We invest something in order to get a desired profit. We give in order to receive. We love in order to be loved.
But is this really what true love means? Is love something we can weigh or measure in any way?
For if we truly love, why do we count each effort that we do for love? And why do we continue to keep a record of wrongs?
In counting the cost of everything, we fail to find that which could never be counted. In seeking what is visible, we fail to find what exists beyond what the eyes can see.
If we truly desire to find love, let us try to reach for something beyond what we can count or measure, something beyond what we can command or control. Sometimes, it’s when we seem to lose everything that we gain what’s truly valuable. It’s when we empty ourselves that we are truly filled.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it. – Matthew 13, NRSVCE
