love thursday 02.23.12 ~ the greatest? love.

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:36-40

Seems to me we could use a little more Love in the land. I wish all the Law here hung on these two.

(P.S. - I am a liberal and a Christian. Those two are not mutually exclusive. Nor is being liberal separate from personal and financial responsibility. Just sayin'....)

Love is all we need. Imagine if love were first, instead of greed and greedy power. Love is primary, like air and water. When we forget those, we suffer. When we try to substitute other things for love, we suffer. They ridiculed John Lennon when he said "Love is all we need.". Imagine.

Thank you Wanda, for the reminder.
