A chapter in the book Short Stories

The War of The souls

by smileycloud

Worldly love seeks self-gratification
Agape love seeks the recipient's highest good
Romantic love seeks reciprocation
God's love seeks souls

Worldly love requires greed
Agape love requires tolerance
Romantic love requires commitment
God's love requires acceptance

Worldly love accrues sorrow
Agape love accrues honor
Romantic love accrues unity
God's love accrues life. Eternal
 
The mind's vision of the soul's purpose
Is written on the pages of our heart's desires
Contained in the book of our lives
  Interpreted by our actions and deeds

Our imperfections and idiosyncrasies tell our story
Our shades of dark and light color our world
The struggle within is the patriarch of our family
The turmoil between right and wrong points to a moral creator

The constant learning curve
Changes our minds into hearts and transforms those hearts into souls
We exist to know there is a God
  Our existence proves there is a God
