In the book of Matthew, it says that when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, ask him a question to test him. Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest? He said to him, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is that you shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Isn’t it possible for your heart, soul, and mind to want different things sometimes? Jesus calls you to integrity and wholeness. As you are drawn into your relationship with him, you come to love what he loves, to desire what he desires, and to think as he thinks.
You can do nothing to make God love you more. God’s love shines on you as the sun shines on this earth. Real prayer includes resting gratefully in that love. You have a treasure in your heart, which is the unlimited love of God for you. But you must share it with your neighbor. You must ask to be a gift of God’s love to others. Ask and see what He does.
