Sincere love

July 8, 2014

Unbelievable! A beautiful question from a crafty mind! Someone well read in the laborious texts of Scripture and who had distilled the crux of all of it tested Jesus. “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied with his two point stunner: Love God, Love your neighbor. “Well said”, the discerning mind that had failed to use his hard-earned wisdom uttered and backed out.

And then the truth, beauty and simple reality of his words dawn on us. True religion is more about God wanting our fellowship than fear. It is more about love than law. And that would be the same with our fellow human beings. All of life would become so much easier if we see that love is the point behind it all. All the laws are designed to help us love in the end, respect one another in the end.

It’s about sincere love from the depth of our hearts. It’s there that we find true religion. A happy God and happy fellow human kind.
