September 20, Today’s thought – Two Grand Links

482012 001God’s Word reveals to me His Love.

Good Morning

Matthew 22:37-40
Jesus said unto him,
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38  This is the first and great commandment.
39  And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments
hang all the law and the prophets.

Matthew 22:40

On these two – hang all the law and the prophets
– They are like the first and last links of a chain,
all the intermediate ones depend on them.
True religion begins and ends in love to God and man.
These are the two grand links that unite God to man,
man to his fellows,
and men again to God.

Love is the fulfilling of the law, says St. Paul,
Romans 13:10; for he who has the love of God in him
delights to obey the Divine precepts,
and to do all manner of kindness to men for God’s sake.

from Clarke’s Commentary

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:
therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Romans 13:10 KJV

Thankful for God showing me His love . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
