Love must be learned

Re: Verse reading–Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; 1 Samuel 20:1-17, 27-42 (day one)

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up.  But pity the man who falls an has no one to help him up.”–v 9.  Strange, isn’t it?  We have classes to teach us how to read and spell and add and speak Spanish. Seminars to learn how to invest our money or start a business.  But, normally, very little instruction is offered on one crucial element of happiness–how to make and keep friends!  “Love must be learned and learned again.  There is no end to it.  Hate needs no instruction.”–Katherine Anne Porter.  This week, RE Verse will guide us to read the word of God and reflect on the lessons, learned or ignored, on a subject that will have more to do with our success and happiness than almost any other.  Love must be learned.  How are we doing?
