Today’s Gospel shows Jesus responding in truth to another entrapment attempt. He calls the Pharisee back to the love of God at the heart of the law, putting together Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 in order to finally fulfil the law …
Love God with everything you have and do the same for your neighbour, who is also beloved of God.
God’s love is just and pure, bringing us only what is life-giving. Everything flows from his love for us. God is moved by us and puts us first.
Do I put God first? How do I respond?
