Love in Ten Lines

Love is to mourn

To mourn those loved

To love those lost

To love those found

To love those burdened

To love and lift

To comfort with love

Accept comfort with love

Stand as love’s witness

Love’s a wondrous thing.

 

… Ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light; Yeah, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life. –Mosiah 18:8-9

 

To me, being willing to do as the Lord has asked and as He has done is an act of love. Showing that you love the Lord and will come to love your fellow men/women whether they will love you back or not. This is not an easy thing, but when has something worth more than all the precious things in this glorious world ever been considered easy?

 

To love someone is not easy, but it is likely worth every moment, whether happy or wretched it may be.
