Beyond Deserving

“Parental love and, by extension, all mentoring love is authentic and effectual in proportion to the degree that it transcends the commonly assumed principle of the circular exchange.  All true love is a stranger to ‘this for that’…  The love that feeds the heart and mind, does in fact model itself after a dimply perceived sense of the way divine love comes to us–that is, moving in upon us first, without any presupposition of our deserving or earning anything.”

Dorothy W. Martyn “Beyond Deserving
