This is my one of my favorite ALL time Bible verses. It continues to confound me that the most hateful people in America CLAIM to be Christian. Yet, this one sentence sums up everything Jesus the Christ actually ASKED US TO DO! PROFOUND!
Thanks for reading – the Daily Word link is also on my links page. I read this religiously! GOD is LOVE!
Today’s Daily Word
LOVE IS MY RELIGION.
When asked to name the greatest commandment, Jesus said it was to love God and to love one’s neighbor as one’s self. The simplicity of this principle is profound.
I love God. I am a wondrous part of the mystery, the order, the magnificence, and the dynamic dance of creating and re-creating that is God. With each thought of gratitude, my love for God deepens.
I love the diversity of my brothers and sisters, each unique in their own way. I love the creative expressions of Spirit that we are and the gifts and attributes we are here to share. Each day we practice kindness and compassion, acceptance and forgiveness, we choose the path of love.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.—Matthew 22:40
