living love

Jesus tells us that life works best when we love God with everything we are and love other people. It seems so simple, but in action it seems so difficult. Why? Perhaps we need to get over our selves. I wonder if we tend to live so myopically that we can’t see beyond ourselves to the people around us. I need to put on new lenses, so that I can see beyond myself, to see a God and a world that I need to love, otherwise I will continue to wallow in my short-sighted emptiness.

What keeps you from loving God with everything you are?
What keeps you from loving others?
What are we going to do about it?
