Love is also a Commandment
The blessed of life is God’s Love;
t’is a chance to live in the Divine
God’s presence is the magnificent sunrises
we experience as we awaken to
a new life each morn
and the dramatic sunsets we are
in awe of each eve.
His presence is the beautiful
music of man,
the melodic music of birds,
the fun-loving music of a baby’s laughter.
The failure of Love often brings suffering;
the failure of love brings rejection
by strangers, by the refugee,
by the sick, by oursleves.
We are all children of God
Whether we call him
or any other thousands of names he is called.
He is the Father of us all.
When we love God
We love the stranger, and the refugee.
We love the Jew and the Muslim.
We love the sick, and we love ourselves.
The two greatest commandments
Given by Jesus is to love God, and
To love our neighbor.
Both bring the Divine to our hearts,
and this is how we pray to God.
