All its essential worth comes from love alone
Some people measure the worth of good actions only by their
natural qualities or their difficulty, giving the preference to what is conspicuous or brilliant. Such men forget that Christian
virtues, which are God’s inspirations, should be viewed from the side of grace, not that of nature. The dignity and difficulty of a good action certainly affects what is technically called its accidental worth, but all its essential worth comes from love alone.
Jean Pierre Camus
