Psalm 18 is proclaimed:
The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul.
The rule of the Lord is to be trusted, it gives wisdom to the simple.
Fresh from yesterday’s Leviticus reading, we have ringing in our hearts:
You must love your neighbour as yourself.
According to James 1 this is the law of perfect freedom. A question arises. Try and answer spontaneously – as this will take your spiritual temperature:
Do I love myself?
If you respond with a resounding “yes,” you are in good health. If “no,” there is work to be done.
