Jesus (Mark 12)

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

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

Prayer:
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)
