Quote – What a Man Loves

“When there is a question as to whether a man is good, one does not ask what he believes…but what he loves.” -St. Augustine

We get caught up on determining (judging?) who is good and who isn’t. It can get tangled and complicated.

Augustine gave a very clear pointer with this observation: “When there is a question as to whether a man is good, one does not ask what he believes…but what he loves.”

What is our heart oriented around?

Other-centered, co-suffering love? That’s good. Self-centered, other-exploiting kinds of love? Bad.
