Not far from this place the greatest teacher once uttered the most important commandment:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Love your neighbor as yourself.
So simple, yet so hard….
When I was at the Western Wall last August I our guide spoke of the importance of loving one another and doing good. The people worshiping at the wall are so full of passion for God. They are so in love with him. Sadly they have overlooked the Messiah. Even still there is much to learn from them.
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
Sure we love God, we give out lives to his control but do we love his people? Do we truly pour out the love he gave so freely to us onto other people? When we love God with all that we are love for others should just flow out naturally. Sadly often it doesn’t. I am just as guilty as the next person. Daily we are in a battle to put others above ourselves.
Good post, Katie. Thanks for sharing.
