for the Love of God

The husband and I had a long and winding conversation yesterday that eventually led us to these verses in the Qur'an:

And they feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive,
(Saying),"We feed you for the sake of God alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.
We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord."
But God will deliver them from the evil of that Day, and will shed over them a Light of Beauty and (blissful) Joy.

76:8-11


If we really loved God like we are suppose to, and we followed the letter and spirit of this verse, if we sought to help each other, as a means to express our LOVE for God, imagine the good we could do.
