Series 2 - Lesson 12 - Annotation 20
What is the relation of love to wisdom?
20. The relation of love to wisdom is that of heart and mind, of feeling and thought, of the feminine and masculine characteristics in the individual nature. The balanced union of the two is conceived to be the harmonious state for man. Love guided by wisdom leads to peace, happiness, and safety. Wisdom directed by love leads to mercy, justice, and truth in all things. Love with wisdom directing it harmonizes discordant conditions in the mind and in the world. Wisdom and love united will bring peace on earth and good will to man. "The love of Christ ... passeth knowledge," — Eph. 3:19, but even if men would take the wisdom they have and combine it with the love they have, the world would be transformed and civilization would begin to unfold in the way of peace and understanding.
