Loving Too Much

It is probably impossible to love any human being simply ‘too much’. We may love him too much in proportion to our love for God; but it is the smallness of our love for God, not the greatness of our love for the man, that constitutes the inordinacy.

– C. S. Lewis, The Four Loves

  2. This is such a… comforting quote…. God needs to come first, but that doesn’t mean loving others less – it means loving God more.
