“Life itself is a classroom and the lesson is always love”

"The lesson is always love” is a saying that has been printed on many images.

American author Madeleine L’Engle (1918-2007) wrote in the book The Irrational Season (1977):

“The Church has always taught that we must pay for our sins, that we shall be judged and punished according to our sinfulness. But I cannot believe that God wants punishment to go on interminably any more than does a loving parent. The entire purpose of loving punishment is to teach, and it lasts only as long as is needed for the lesson. And the lesson is always love.”

“Life itself is a classroom and the lesson is always love” was posted on Twitter by Melanie Beckler on June 10, 2009.

“The lesson is always Love” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Leah Candace Zegouros on January 19, 2012.

Her works reflect both her Christian faith and her strong interest in modern science.
