“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 greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

My purpose for today and every day: to love as Jesus commanded — not asked, but commanded.

Love has many aspects: kindness, respect, courtesy, civility, compassion, patience, humility, forgiveness.

Today I will follow Jesus and choose one aspect of love to practice with God, myself, and my neighbor.
