MARY LOVES THE LAMB, YOU KNOW

There’s an old anecdote

that goes like this:

”What makes the lamb love Mary so?”’

the curious child asked.

”Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,”

the wise teacher replied.

It’s a truism.

We tend to love those who first loved us.

The lamb loves Mary

because Mary first loved the lamb.

We respond to someone’s gift of love

because it encourages us,

comforts us, motivates us, inspires us,

makes us feel special and valued

No other emotion has such an impact.

To be loved inspires us to love back,

to give what we have already received.

In turn, the love we choose to give

comes back to us,

because others also tend to love those

who have given them love..

It’s a wonderful, mysterious cycle

that is spiritual in nature,

nourishing to the soul,

and warms the heart.

  1. What a beautiful post. I remember the first time someone said they loved me (romantically). I responded in kind, not knowing what else to say. I love you too. Though I had no idea what that meant. Your post reminded me of that.
