To love you as I should.

To love you as I should, I must worship God as Creator. When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased.
~from a letter C. S. Lewis wrote

 I think it's so true that when we love the Lord first and foremost, we will love others the way we ought. Oh, to truly love my Savior with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength!
