Love's Way | by Orison Swett Marden



Modern thought is putting a new meaning into the invitation. It is extending the application of Christ's words to every human problem. He put no limitations to his invitation, which is the voice of Divine Love, calling to us. Love's way is Christ's way. It says, "Love your enemies, bless those that curse you "Let him that is without sin cast the first stone"; and on this condition no one can cast a stone because there is no one without sin, no one without some weakness as unfortunate as his neighbor's.
