Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.--Leo Buscaglia
Learning to do good in the world without expecting something in return is a great privilege (see Luke 6:35). We need to realize that most of the time we shall not see visible results for the love we express and the efforts we put forth to bless others. We keep doing good regardless, leaving results with God who rewards us with an inner peace that no person could ever give. The reward for doing good lies in our participation in God’s love and pouring it forth. Just to follow our calling as it unfolds to us is all we need to do.
