What is love?
On Valentine’s Day, many of us celebrate romantic love—we shower our significant others with gifts and affection to show them we care. The Ancient Greeks separated love into different types ranging from affection, friendship, and romance to divine love, which they called agape.
Jesus spoke of this divine love when asked which was the greatest commandment—to love God and each other. Agape love transcends understanding and conditions. It’s Christ’s love in us that flows to others through us. C.S. Lewis, in his book The Four Loves, describes agape as a selfless love that is passionately committed to the well-being of others.
As an organization, we strive to be passionately committed to the well-being of others. We are so fortunate to work shoulder-to-shoulder with so many of you who strive for the same.
Happy Valentine’s Day from CGI and thanks for the love you extend through your support.
