Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Rom. 13:8 Apparently paradoxical debt of love! You owe it, you pay it, you still owe it! A debt which accumulates as you pay, which never decreases though you pay! An obligation which, though you always faithfully fulfill it, is never fulfilled!
