Mothers Teresa’s Teaching on Love
“We must love those who are nearest to us in our own family. From there, love spreads towards whoever may need us”.
“Love starts at home and lasts at home…the home is each person’s first field of loving, devotion and service”.
“I think the world is upside down. It is suffering so much because there is so little love in the home and in family life”.
“You cannot give to the outside world what you do not have on the inside…compassion and love have to grow from within”.
“It is easy to love people far away. It is easier to give a cup of rice than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home”.
“I want you to go and find the poor in your own homes. Above all, your love has to start there”.
