Read the following quote this morning. It’s a good follow-up to my last post.
The great commandment is not “thou shalt be right.”
The great commandment is to be “in love.”
Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs
Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?
Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:36-40)
The interesting thing about this quote and the great commandment:
When we love, we are right.
