FROM THE TIME that it was revealed, I often desired to know what our Lord’s meaning was. After more than 15 years, I was answered in spiritual understanding, “What? Would you know your Lord’s meaning in this thing? Know it well: love was the meaning. Who showed it to you? Love. What did God show you? Love. Why did God show it? For love. Hold on to that, and you will understand more of the same. But apart from that, you will never understand anything.
