Love God.

Love others.

Have you ever felt your love expand? For example, love was not there for a particular person in your life and then a few months later the love expands inside you? We rarely note the exact time that love starts. It is hard to pinpoint the beginning of this deep care and concern for another.

  • The moment an expectant parent meets their new child face-to-face.
  • The moment when you realize you have been in love with another.
  • The moment a friend needs help during a trying time, and you want to do whatever you can to help.

Love. It flourishes and blooms in us. At times it is overwhelming, unstoppable even. At its best, love overflows and reaches even those you have no connection with.

This week’s gospel from Mark 12:28-34 highlights what many refer to as the Great Commandment.

“The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all our 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.”

Simply put, love God; love others.

This love of God mirrors the love God has for us. This abundant, never-ending love, a love that is not dependent on how “good” we are or whether we do the right thing. This abundant love God has for us is the love we, too, have for God. And in its abundance, it overflows to others around us.

May we all overflow with love for our God today, that love may go from us to all whom we meet, catching us off-guard, inspiring us toward goodness.
