Jesus says, “As the Father loves me, so I love you …. love one another as I love you.”
It’s that simple and that deep. We have God’s love within us, and we need to let that love shine on others. God loved us first, and we are to pass that love on to others. That’s why Jesus came, to show us the amazing love of our God for us that we may have life through him.
Jesus says, “Whoever remains in me and I in them will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.” The love that is the vine, flows into us who are the branches. It’s that simple, and it’s that deep.
When I realize that God has loved me first, I discover I am capable of loving others, even when it seems impossible or when those others are difficult to love. It’s that simple ! It’s that deep !
St. Joseph, pray for us !
