We can make faith so very, very, very complicated. But when he was asked what was the most important commandment, Jesus answered simply: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind," and "Love your neighbor as yourself."
Fabulously straightforward! And deeply challenging.
Love God with everything that is in you, and love the people around you with the same kind of love you have for yourself.
I hope the postings on this site will help you to... Love God. Understand Yourself. Serve Others. If we can live like that, there is no telling what God can do through us!
May God bless you and yours, this day and always!
