October 19–Nothing Greater than These

“The most important [commandment],” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31

There is no commandment greater than these. There is nothing greater than love. Nothing.

Today, may each of us, by the power and the will of our Lord God, choose to truly love God, others and ourselves more fully…more purely, more sacrificially, more sincerely, more wisely, more generously, more kindly, more patiently, more joyfully. 

Then, let each of us choose to love more and more in this way tomorrow and the next day and the next day…

Because nothing is greater than love.

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane

  1. Hmm. . .thanks, I needed this reminder. There are just some people I love unconditionally, and being generous with them comes easily.

    But your post today really had me think of the few people in my life that take a little extra grace to get along with–people I need to love more patiently. I’ll work that one in today, and the next. . .

    Thanks!
