The One You Love The Least

In my quest to be compelled by the love of Christ in 2008, I’ve started collecting quotes that reflect the magnitude of this love. Here’s one of the most haunting ones I’ve come across. I really hope this isn’t true. But I have a feeling it is.

You really only love God as much as you love
the person you love the least.
— Dorothy Day

    Man! I hate it when people show me beautifully challenging stuff like that 😉 Seriously, thank you for this. I needed it today.AE

    This phrase has haunted me ever since I read it in Yancey’s “What’s So Amazing About Grace?”

    I can’t remember when I first read it – it’s been a while ago, but I certainly needed the reminder. Darn that Yancey for putting such haunting quotes in front of his readers like that!
