My reflection is from Living Faith:
Moses spoke to the people… “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. Take to heart these words which I enjoy in on you today. “ Deuteronomy 6:2, 4-6
“This passage contains the basic principle of the whole Mosaic law; its words are used in the most important Jewish prayer, recited morning and night. The stunning revelation it contains is that there is only one God, their God, a God who is not remote and harsh, but one who offers and calls for a total relationship of love.
My friend, whose parents were concentration camp survivors, remembers they’re saying, ‘Even there we kept praying to the Lord, our God, in love.’
Dear Lord, our God, with gratitude beyond words that the gift of faith in you has been passed on to me, help me experience and show my love for you today.” Pat Livingston
