We thank You for revealing Your word to us.
For keeping it simple.
Pure and untarnished truth.
May we always have at the forefront of our minds.
Written on the tablet of our heart and on the walls of our lives.
The greatest of all Your commandments.
The imperative, urgent, most needful thing.
To love You with all of our heart.
Our entire mind.
Every ounce of strength.
And all of our soul.
At the same time, loving the one beside us, in front of us and behind us.
As we love ourselves.
When we do this, we will live.
This is the high calling we have in You.
This is life in Christ, in its glorious simplicity.
May we not complicate it.
For in You, the essence of Love itself.
Is how we inherit eternal life.
In the name of Jesus (Messiah), Amen.
Luke 10 v 25- 28
