Truth and love are supposed to be two, balanced virtues in our lives. But too often people have one without the other.
If it's all love and no truth, their lives are like a river without boundaries. They become a swamp, with no purpose or meaning.
But if their lives are all truth without love, they become prideful, self-rigtheous and judgmental. Their hearts and lives become hardened. No one really enjoys being around them!
Therefore, if you want to enjoy life to the full, balance truth and love. Seek truth with all your heart, but make sure your heart is consumed with love. That way, you won't become a river without boundaries or a self-righteous prig. Indeed, you will become a mature human being who knows what's really important in life.
Truth and love, properly balanced, is how we're supposed to live!
