Jesus said unto him,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments
hang all the law and the prophets.
Thou shalt love the Lord –
This is a subject of the greatest importance,
and should be well understood,
as our Lord shows that the whole of true religion
is comprised in thus loving God and our neighbor
3. He loves God with all his strength
(Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27)
who exerts all the powers of his body and soul in the service of God:
– who, for the glory of his Maker,
spares neither labor nor cost –
who sacrifices his time, body, health, ease,
for the honor of God his Divine Master: –
who employs in his service all his goods,
his talents, his power, credit, authority, and influence.
Let your love be strong for the Lord . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
Today is Mary’s birthday, born 9 weeks early, in 1968,
weighing in at 3 pounds 6 ounces and 16 inches long.
God spared her life even when I was told
“This one isn’t going to make it”
Mary has been a joy and comfort to me.
