Jesus had just silenced the Sadducees who had tried to catch Him out with a problem to which they believed He had no answer.

Now it was the turn of the Pharisees. They came to Him in a group with a question they felt He would answer wrongly. They wanted to know what He thought was the greatest commandment in the Law.

There were more than 600 laws, and there was much discussion as to which were more important. Jesus answered them by quoting from the books of Deuteronomy and Leviticus, two books of the Law.

One law tells us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind; the other tells us to love our neighbour as ourselves. Jesus says that the whole of the Law is contained in these two statements. They asked for one piece of law, but Jesus gave them two.

For Him, though, they are one - the love of God and love of brothers and sisters cannot be separated. And in keeping them, everything else is taken care of. Do we really believe this?

Help me, Lord, to love You and to love all those around me as You love them.

10月25日( 日 )   常年期第三十主日

出谷紀 22:20-26
聖詠 18[17]:2-4,47,51
得撒洛尼前書 1:5-10
瑪竇福音 22:34-40

神而人的耶穌基督來到我們當中,就是要建立天人的橋樑。祂把天地間最大的誡命用普通人都聽得懂,且可以實行的方式傳達出來。我們既然有福氣認識了這樣的一位好救星,就讓我們不要錯失祂的救恩。

生活在訊息極速增長的時代,我們都接觸過許多論述嚴密的理論系統。仿佛愈是高級的知識,愈不容易普及到芸芸眾生。可是,宇宙的創造者今天將天地間最大的誡律用人聽得懂的語言講出來,並且親自示範如何去遵行。得撒洛尼人在他們的那個時代,認真地去學習,並實行了。他們更獲得了保祿宗徒的誇獎。古代以色列子民從他們自己的生命經驗中,學習體會了甚麼是愛人如己。後來的我們有著他們都無法相比的優勢,我們更該如何完好地去實行天地間的最大誡律呢?


主,謝謝祢不離不棄的愛!我今生最大的福氣就是認識了祢。我願意盡全力配合祢的恩典,用我的一生去愛祢愛人。
