October 26, Ex. 22:20-26; I Thes. 1:5c 10; Mt. 22:34-40

spent the day reading, resting, had dinner with stephen, and then tv and bed. very tired today, very tired.

the culture in which we live promotes radical individualism.  we are told to think of ourselves first and to act always in our own best interest.  the message of Jesus is that of solidarity–and it challenges the individualism of our day. we are to think of our neighbors. only when this order is kept in tact in our lives do we experience the blessedness that Jesus has in store for us.  Selfishness and self-absorption have no place in the reign of God, for the reign of God is about love of God and the neighbor. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
