To paraphrase Mother Theresa of Calcutta, the real point of loving is to never get tired of loving. It takes courage to love as it exposes us to be vulnerable. We cannot dictate that the loving and mercy we have shown will be extended to us in return. We cannot complain if it does not get reciprocated. We focus rather on what was given is beautiful and the recipient becomes happy and empowered. Maybe, love will flow back and opportunities of caring will be exposed and bloom to really ignite mercy.
