“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Deuteronomy 6:4-7

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Hear, O Israel:

The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.

.

You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart,

and with all your soul, and with all you might.

.

Keep these words that I am commanding you today, in your heart.

Recite them to your children

and talk about them when you are at home

and when you are away,

when you lie down and when you rise.

.

– Deuteronomy 6:4-7

REFLECTION…

.

Shema Yisrael:

Adonai eloheinu, Adonai echad.

.

Hear, O Israel:

The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.

.

With the coming of Christ,

the Shema also expresses the foundation of Christian living.

.

Life itself is all about loving God with all of every part of us.

And love for God is best expressed in loving others.

.

Jesus obeyed and loved God,

and He loved others…perfectly.

.

If we are to be like Jesus,

the desperate desire of our hearts is to do the same.

.

Finally, loving God and loving others springs out of

a deep passion for,

intense and constant meditation of,

and commitment to the Word of God.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

LORD, You are my God,

You alone.

.

Lord, I want to love You with all my heart,

and with all my soul,

and with all my might.

.

Lord, let me keep these words in my heart,

let me recite them to my children,

and talk about them when I am at home and when I am away,

when I lie down and when I rise.

.

Amen.
