SCRIPTURE – Today’s video is based on Mark 12:28-34. Here is an excerpt. “The first is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
REFLECT – All of us have carried the wounds of original sin, and all of us are in need of healing of some kind. If we want to be the kind of person who loves our neighbors as ourselves and loves God with our whole hearts, we first need to go to God and ask Him to heal us. We can’t give what we don’t have, and to spread God’s love, we need it ourselves. What area of your life needs God’s love and healing the most? Don’t keep it from Him, call out to Him urgently and He will run to you.
SHARE – Spend some time asking God to fill you with His love and healing grace, and to then show you who to take that love to next.
PRAY – God our Father, Divine Physician, come into my heart and reveal to me what still needs Your healing. I offer you my entire heart. Please heal me and fill me with Your love, so that I can share it with the people around me. Amen.
