No Limitation to True Love

From Mark 10 to 22:34, we see the Lord answering series of questions. The paramount ones among them came from leading and learned persons. After docking the Pharisees, the Herodians and the Sadducees, the Lord is face to face with a lawyer, asking him question about the greatest among the laws. If a lawyer does not know anything, it shouldn't be the laws. So, presumably, he knew the answer to the question

He only asked with a view to putting the Lord to the test. What is important for us is not so much his question but the response of the Lord, quoting Deut 7:4-6, that the love of God and of neighbour must be supreme in our hearts. If we love God, we will love those made in his image and likeness. If we love our neighbours, we will respect them as human beings notwithstanding their status and our standings tall above them.

How beautiful the world would be if we learn to live in love even when we are persecuted! Like St Paul, we must remain steadfast in the face of hostility.
God loves you! God bless you!
