Mark 12, 28-34

The Word of God

One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, 'Which commandment is the first of all?' Jesus answered, 'The first is, "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." The second is this, "You shall love your neighbour as yourself." There is no other commandment greater than these.' Then the scribe said to him, 'You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that "he is one, and besides him there is no other"; and "to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength", and "to love one's neighbour as oneself", — this is much more important than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.' When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, 'You are not far from the kingdom of God.' After that no one dared to ask him any question.

    • "Love your neighbour as yourself" – just how do I love myself? I am not just aware of present pleasure or pain. I think ahead, protect my routines and give energy to ensuring my comfort. Lord, if you are asking me to do all that for my neighbour, I will need to try much harder than I am doing.
    • Could you have an image of your heart, soul, mind, strength - maybe a picture for the feelings of your heart, or colour for your soul; imagine the depth of your mind and the strength of your body? Imagine each of them in prayer, or one by one; offer them to God in love. Part of prayer is bringing your whole self in love to the one who is creating you moment by moment, day by day, in love.
