Søren Kierkegaard: “To the Christian love is the works of love.”

31 August 2010

“To the Christian love is the works of love. To say that love is a feeling or anything of the kind is really an un-Christian conception of love. That is the aesthetic definition and therefore fits the erotic and everything of that nature. But to the Christian love is the works of love. Christ’s love was not an inner feeling, a full heart and what not, it was the work of love which was his life. “

- Søren Kierkegaard: Journals.

    Very well put.
    I believe love is a choice. When we choose love, then love will work in us.
