Thought of the week
The law of love
This is my commandment: love one Reviews another, as I have loved you. (John 15: 12). In connection with the law of love, here’s a story I read recently: A newspaper told the story of a boy with cancer. He had lost his hair during chemotherapy. As a sign of sympathy and support, all his classmates had shaved their heads so that it he was not embarrassed when he returned. The newspaper showed a picture of the children with shaved head, with the title: “Everything we do, we do it together.” Wooowwww!
With his law of love, Jesus fixes two other laws which were in force before him: a) the law of vengeance and b) the law of retribution: do to your enemy exactly like he did you. What has been called ‘eye for eye and tooth for tooth “(Leviticus 24, 20)
Jesus introduces a third way: the law of love. No more vengeance, more than a quick succession, but choose to forgive to love. If there are people you have not forgiven, the law of love invites you to offer your forgiveness. By forgiving, you release but mostly you free yourself of the burden that prevents you from love.
Have a good week.
