Love vs Devotion

Love vs Devotion

Don Stevens then read out this explanation on the difference between love and devotion:

Love burns the lover; devotion burns the Beloved.

Love seeks happiness for the Beloved; devotion seeks blessings from the Beloved.

Love seeks to shoulder the burden of the Beloved; devotion throws the burden on the Beloved.

Love gives; devotion asks.

Love is silent and sublime, devoid of outward expressions; devotion expresses itself outwardly.

Love does not require the presence of the Beloved in order to love; devotion demands the presence of the Beloved to express affection for the Beloved., p4371
