Gospel Reading and Thoughts for May 10, 2015

Jesus teaching 4Gospel – John 15:9-17

Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy might be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.”

 

What a beautiful Gospel for Mother’s Day! Love one another! Love me! Love my Father! If you live love in everything you do, you are doing what God asks of you. Great love can be poured in to little tasks. Everyday we can give our love through our words and actions. Sometimes our loving works may go unnoticed by all around us save the One who made us and sees all! He is Love! So if we live love in our daily lives, we are as close to God as we can be!
