SimchaMinute by Rabbi Avigdor Miller
Ahavas (love of) Hashem is such a far off ideal that people don’t even think about it.
Ever think about loving Hashem? Did you ever say to Hashem in English or Yiddish, "I love You, Ribono Shel Olam"? You never said once in your life, "I love You Hashem"? You went to the mesivta, you got semicha, You learned Shas,
Never once said in your life to say, "I love You Hashem"? What kind of life is that? Ahavas Hashem is a chiyuv (obligatory).. — Bringing Up Children 10 (#880)
