Writing and etymology in Korean
사랑에 대한 책임
[saran-e daehan chaeg-im]

愛 (사랑) [saran] – love

Achieving the highest ideal of human love is possible only if a person takes responsibility.

We look at responsibility in three ways. The first is responsibility, which allows a person to become the master of true love, truly free and grateful to the Heavenly Parent for the freedom to express feelings and able to control himself. Responsibility for loving relationships cannot be perceived only as law or generally accepted norms. On the contrary, a person must develop responsibility through self-control and independent decision-making, in a living relationship with God.

The second aspect of responsibility is responsibility towards the object of love. By nature, people do not want to share the love of their spouses with a third party. Marital love, being scattered, is deprived of its potential for improvement. This is because Heavenly law requires complete unity in absolute love between husband and wife. Each spouse bears the responsibility that love imposes on him. He must completely devote his life to his spouse.

The third aspect of the responsibility of love concerns children. Parental love is the basis of children’s pride and happiness. They would like to be born from the complete and harmonious unity of their parents in true love and to be raised surrounded by such love. The most important responsibility of parents is not so much the external care of their children, but rather the giving to them of the life-giving elements of true love, designed to contribute to their spiritual improvement. This is what makes the family extremely valuable.

The daily experience of the heart of true children, true brothers and sisters, true spouses and true parents cannot be acquired outside of the true family.
