"You are not far from the Kingdom of God"
Jesus, in today's gospel, shares with us the two greatest commandments for us to enter the God's Kingdom --- to "love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength" and to "love your neighbor as yourself." Through these two commandments, Jesus teaches us to simplify. Our journey towards eternity need not to be very complicated with the long list of do’s and don’ts. It’s so easy for us to get overwhelmed with these that we forgot the real essence of why we do or not do such things, which is love.
Dearest Jesus, thank you for reminding us of the ultimate purpose of our being and that is to love. May loving you and loving others be the highest goal in everything that we say and do. Amen.
