Love the Lord

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
-Deuteronomy 6:5

What does it mean to love…?

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to speak to woman suffering from a very aggressive form of cancer.  Looking at her, I could see so many things that she could have been upset about.  I certainly would not blame her if she felt angry or resentful in her current condition.  However, when I walked into her home, I was met with a smile.  This woman was grateful for the communion I brought to her and the time to worship and pray.  She had love, and she offered love… and that was all she needed to have joy.  The only question she had related to why so many healthy people in this world seemed so distressed.  Sometimes, when we are surrounded by blessings, it is easy to forget what really matters.

I hope we can take a little time today to count our blessings.  Opening our eyes to God’s Love reminds us of what truly matters.  We are loved, and we can love.  Knowing this and offering what we have is the definition of a fulfilled life…
