Lord, you showed us that love
was more than a feeling,
it was a commitment
to a higher source.
You commanded us to love.
A command is not open
to the vicissitudes of feeling,
but is accepted or rejected.
Lord, open our hearts and minds
to those who need our love
and give us wisdom
to love them as you do.
Show me your way, Lord.

John 15:12-14:
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.”

Hymn: Love Divine All Loves Excelling
