John 13: 34-35 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. * * * * * * * * It is Maundy Thursday....Maundy=Mandate=Commandment. The commandment is to love. Jesus loved us by "leaving it all out on the field." Keep loving. Don't stop. Don't quit. Don't make excuses. Don't hate. Love. Don't wait until you have more time or more money or more skills. Love. You would think we wouldn't need to be told. But sometimes we do need to have someone grab us by our face mask and tell us to get in the game. Love. Yeah, you. * * * * * * * * Lord, thanks for not leaving us to sit on the bench. Amen.
