Love Never Fails : Moving the lines… part two

A couple of days ago, I wrote about moving the lines. Today I have just a few more thoughts.

Richard Rohr, in his book Jesus Plan for a New World: The Sermon on the Mount, says this,

“Jesus is always moving the boundaries out, while still respecting the center. That’s the key to wisdom: being grounded in the center and still, from that deep foundation, knowing how to move out.”

Today I’m thinking on this. Asking God to show me the center from which his Gospel should move out. It’s okay to move the boundaries out, to “move the lines,” as long as we are true to the center of what Jesus taught us. The core, I believe is this:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

If we all loved God and loved our neighbor as ourselves, there would be no sin. No need for any laws. Can you imagine?

As you move through your day and your weekend, think on this. Ask God to show you where his center is for you and guide you to move the lines as you love him and love your neighbor as yourself. Because,

Love Never Fails.
