I loved the world. I loved the lusts of the eyes. The lusts of the flesh. The lusts of the self. And thus I became the image of my love. And faced the same agony, suffering, degradation.

But when I looked to Christ. And I learned the Truth: that God is Love. That true Love looks to the benefit of the other. Then I participated in the Love than only God can bring. To be in Love with Him. And, by His grace, I began to change.
