for Sunday, October 26, 2008
The Lord says, "Don't just think about me when it is convenient for you. Don't destroy your minds with evil thoughts. The Lord says. " Do you despair? It will be all right. Give me your mind, love me and I will transform your thoughts, and make them like mine. I will give you wisdom." "Give me you hearts," the Lord says. He wants our whole heart. He wants us to love him with every part of
ourselves, even the parts that are empty and need love. He wants us to love him by loving others. The only real love is the love that gives. This is the love that God wants us to have for each other. In this love HE is present.
God wants our entire soul. He wants our ability to love to think, our ability to imagine, our ability to choose, our ability to express ourselves as individuals, our ability to be who we are, created in his image and likeness.
"You shall love the Lord with your whole mind, your whole hearts and your whole soul." If we want to have meaning in our lives, if we want to die knowing that we have been faithful to the reason we have been created, then we have to give all we have back to God.
