Love Each Other

But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Mt 22:34-40) The mark of a Christian is love, loving God and loving people. If we love God, we will love others also. This doesn't mean we don't speak the truth, but it does mean that we speak it lovingly, concerned for others and intent on practicing what we preach. May we love God and others today!
