Asked about the most important law, Jesus summarised the ten commandments: “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” (Mat 22:37-39) So, the ten commandments are love unpacked.
One of the measures of love is respect. It is easy to find many examples of disrespect all around us. Respect for God, people and the environment seem to be in quick decline. But let us not notice the speck (particle) in others’ eyes and miss the log in our own. How does our respect for God stack up? Do what we say, think and do, or refrain from saying, thinking, and doing, reflect respect for God? Is our respect for people and the world around us clear in our words, thoughts and actions?
BLord, may what we think, say, pray and do, reflect our love and respect for You, others and your creation. Amen.
