“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 13:8




Be under obligation to no one

– the only obligation you have is to love one another.

Whoever does this has obeyed the Law.


– Romans 13:8 (GNT)






Christian love

is all about giving

– to others –

and not quite the other way round.


In his beautiful prayer,

St Francis of Assisi, asks the Lord

to grant him that he may not so much seek to be loved

as to love.

He acknowledges that

“it is in giving that we receive".


As we give of ourselves,

we are obeying Jesus’ commandment,

and in doing so we receive the peace and blessing of our risen Lord,

and we will be filled to overflowing with His love.






Lord Jesus, I so want to love like You loved.

Take over my heart, Lord!
