Greetings in Christ, Brothers and Sisters, May the words of Our Lord, Jesus spoken in Mark 12:28-31 help keep us sure of our steps and direct in our path of serving God's Good Purpose. "And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:28-31 We seek the Lord's wisdom and direction in each and every aspect of our lives. His Unconditional Love is our blessed assurance, and in embracing it we find our divine inspiration. We keep our hearts and our thoughts focused on bringing God's Light into this world; we show our gratefulness for the Compassion he shows us by sharing that compassion with those around us. God Loves us that we may love each other. Lord, we thank You each day for the blessed opportunities You give us to praise You by serving others. You are truly a Loving God.
