Jesus (Mark 12)

One of the scribes asked Jesus, “Which is the first of all commandments?” Jesus replied, “You shall love.”

Life is sometimes so full of laws, rules and regulations that sorting out the essentials can become a dauntless pursuit.

Lord God, your answer to the scribe was loud and clear: “You shall love.” Our purpose in life is, “. . . to burn with love, to be a light, to be a fire.” (C. Doherty)
