Isn’t it amazing how Jesus gives us the simplest way to please God and be at peace, and yet we make it complicated or even justify why we ignore it? To love God, others and self is a gift that can be given by anyone at any stage, or status, in life (Mk. 12:28-34).
But our ego gets in the way. God knows our hearts and is fully aware when love is genuine or fake. How many of God’s people miss out on being blessed because we refuse to love. Let us ask for the grace to love as God loves. Love heals and leads to life.
Loving Father, may we reveal that we are Your children by the evidence of our love. Amen.
