Reflection for the Week - March 18

The New Testament clearly highlights that God is love and that Christians are to love God, themselves, and others. Being loved by God then is an invitation to love. Loving our neighbor as ourselves, loving our enemies, and loving strangers are actions that should identify us as lovers. In a quite stunning and remarkable manner, therefore, God’s love for us opens up possibilities of having a greater love than could ever be the case otherwise.
