Intense love

Jesus replied, ” You can’t make the wedding guests fast while the groom is with them, can you? The days will come when the groom will be taken from them, and then they will fast.”

Then he told them a parable. “No one tears a patch from a new garment to patch an old garment. Otherwise, the new garment would be ruined, and the new patch wouldn’t match the old garment. Nobody pours new wine into old wineskins. If they did, the new wine would burst the wineskins, the wine would spill, and the wineskins would be ruined. Instead, new wine must be put into new wineskins.  No one who drinks a well- aged wine wants new wine, but says, ‘The well- aged wine is better. ‘” ~Luke 5:33-39 (CEB)

“To go where healing love is needed, and give it in a way in which it can be received, often means acting in the teeth of our own interests and preferences, even religious interests and preferences. Christ risked his reputation for holiness by healing on the Sabbath; he touched the unclean and dined with the wrong people; he accepted the love and companionship of a sinner (that most wonderful of all remedies for the wounds of sin). He loved with God’s love and so went straight to the point: What can I do to restore my fellow creature and how?” ~From The Light of Christ by Evelyn Underhill

Help me this day O Lord to see with Your eyes and to hear with Your ears so that I may love Your children as You would love them. Let me not be afraid this day to reach out to the sick and hurting. May I not be so busy with my own interests and opinions for others to see You in me. Amen.
