Only love can grieve. 
If you don't love, 
you won't grieve.
~ AW Tozer

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, 
with all your soul, 
with all your strength, 
and with all your mind,
and your neighbor as yourself."
~ The Lord Jesus

(Luke 10:27;cf Matt 19:19,22:39;Mark 12:3)

nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, 
but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: 
I am the Lord."

Owe no one anything except to love one another,
for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law.
For the commandments,
“You shall not commit adultery,”
“You shall not murder,” 
“You shall not steal,” 
“You shall not bear false witness,”
“You shall not covet,”
and if there is any other commandment,
are all summed up in this saying, namely,

therefore love is the fulfillment of the Law.
