If you want proof that you love God as He should be loved, consider whether in comparison with Him you love anything with a greater love. When we love many things at the same time, the love we have for each is weak and very imperfect. So long as we live in this valley of tears, our capacity to love is very limited; therefore, we must not dissipate our love by spreading it over many objects, but keep it reserved for loving the supreme goodness of God.
