“Would you know Your Lord’s meaning in this thing? Know it well. Love was His meaning. Who showed it to you? Love. Why did He show it to you? For Love.” – Julian of Norwich

Psalm 19:9

The precepts of God are right, rejoicing the heart. The command of God is clear, enlightening the eye.

+++

Jesus put into perspective all the laws of God.

He said, “Do to others whatever you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12).

When Jesus was asked what was the greatest commandment, he said: “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).

Love is the bottom line.

It’s all that matters.

God is love (1 John 4:8).

When we are present to this Love, our hearts do rejoice.

When we understand that Love is our Source, our Life, and our Destiny, our eyes are enlightened.

This is God’s command, not suggestion, but command, that we love all people and all of creation.

May it be so!
