The Moralisation of Love

“Faith is the moralisation of love. It is not a cognitive act. Emunah, the biblical word for faith, really means ‘covenant loyalty’. It means being true to the bond you have made with another, honouring your word and trusting them to honour theirs. God makes promises to us. We make promises to God. At the deepest level of metaphor and meaning, faith is a marriage, a bond entered into in love and honoured in life.”
