“He answered, ‘“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and, “Love your neighbour as yourself.”’ – Luke 10:27
We live in a world in crisis, but hopefully one day it will end. What sort of world do we want after this? One where everything goes back to the way it was? Or one that’s changed for the better?
Jesus asks us to love our neighbours as ourselves. This means to not be self-centred, but to consider others lives and well-being as valuable as our own lives. Before this pandemic, how many people would have done the shopping for the little old lady down the street? Or called up strangers to check on them? We have seen a lot of positivity recently, with people being kind, and it’s something we shouldn’t lose once this is all over. After all, a kinder world isn’t just better; its divine.
