Tobit 6:10-11; 7:1bcde, 9-17; 8:4-9a; Mark 12:28-34
“And ‘to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself’ is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” – Mk 12:33
Jesus tells us to love both God and others. Do I always follow this golden rule?
Lord, loving you is not a problem, but sometimes it is very hard to love my neighbor. Sometimes my neighbor hurts me, is mean to me, and degrades me. Help me to overlook these faults and to respond in love to my neighbor.
