I wanted to post this yesterday (Sunday) but the kids were in need of the computer for (gasp!) homework.
So here is my “Sunday musing” on a Monday morning…
Still waters run deep, or so the saying goes.
One of the challenges I face in life and with blogging is “keeping it real.” I want to share who I am along with my joys and challenges, but sometimes I have trouble articulating it all. When it comes to sharing the faith-piece of me, I’ve got a Paul Problem; that is to say, no big conversion story in my life, just a quiet journey.
Today I am thinking about two things. One is from the passage in the New Testament gospel of Matthew, where Jesus is being questioned (with intent to trick) by the religious leaders who ask him,
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
(Matthew 22:36-40, New International Version [translation])
The other thing I am thinking about today is a quote from Martha Grace Reese:
“The heart of faith-sharing is one person giving another a vision of what it’s like to be in love with God.”
