Resolve to love this year

Love your neighbor as yourself.

"faith, hope, love" each word written on a card, strung on a line with clothes pins
you cannot love without giving. Amy Carmichael
Amy Carmichael was an Irish missionary to India. She is known for opening a safe house called Dohnavur Fellowship after rescuing children from being trafficked in the Hindu temples. She served in India for fifty-five years without a furlough, and in the last twenty years of her life, she remained bedridden and wrote several books and poems about her deep love for Christ. Her dedication to serving God has inspired many Christians to become missionaries and to remain steadfast in their faith.https://bethanygu.edu/blog/stories/amy-carmichael/

And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test Jesus.

“Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?”

He said to him, 


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.

This is the greatest and most important command. 

 The second is like it:

Love your neighbor as yourself.
