Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
March 28, A.D. 2003
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Have you ever noticed how succinct and "to the point" God's Holy Word
often is? It's as if it was meant to be easily memorized for quick and
The other side of this reality is how hard we seem to make it to act on
God's Word. As with this and other difficult and complex things a
hierarchal understanding and approach is often useful. Jesus, The Word
of God, and Author of all things, has provided us with just such
hierarchal tool's for our salvation.
First, we are told, we must love the Lord God above everything else
with our whole heart and soul and mind and strength. This Great
Commandment is the foundation for everything else; if we truly love
God, we are eager to obey and please Him.
Just so that it is clear how pervasive our love of God was to be,
Jesus reiterated the second Great Commandment, that we love our
neighbor (remembering that all are sustained by the Lord and that in the baptized neighbor the Living God dwells) as ourselves.
Let us meditate on these Great Commandments and beg God to let them be
operative in our lives, in our world.
