Imagine walking into a room that contains nothing but a single wooden chair. Sitting in the chair is someone you don’t particularly care for. Maybe the two of you had a falling out years ago. Maybe you don’t share the same political or religious ideology. Maybe you don’t like “people like that.”
Now imagine that Jesus walks into the room and says (as He does to the Pharisees in Sunday's Gospel): “Love the Lord. Love your neighbor.” How do you respond? Does it stir up some introspection?
Love the Lord. Love your neighbor. That's what is asked of us. “The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” (Mt 22:40)
Wow! this one hits home! Thanks.
In the lines of an old song this is "What the world needs now..." respect and reconciliation with all.
"Love as I love; learn from me."
(7. Best i could do.) :+)
Makes me stop and reflect!
Go out to all the World and bear witness of my love.
