Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
Of all things that can be known in the human experience, indeed the greatest of all is the experience of love. No matter how seemingly magnificent and grand anything else in human life may appear to be, it is but a shallow substitute at best for the knowing and experiencing of love.
Love is true wealth, for if you have it in your life you will feel wealthy, even if you do not possess riches in a material or financial sense. If, on the other hand, you have abundant financial and material wealth, but are without love in your life, there is no way that what you have materially can make up for the emptiness or loneliness in your life.
As one passes through life, so many types of experiences are given priority positions in the human mind. Some of these areas are indeed important, in terms of human life experience, but none is as important as love.
