Friday, April 26, 2024 — Psalm 55:16–19
Leviticus 20:9–21:12; Mark 6:45–56

Fear God, and keep his commandments, for that is the whole duty of everyone. Ecclesiastes 12:13

Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31

Holy One, you have made it clear to us that it all comes down to love—love God, love one another. As we seek to live into your way of love, help us to see and honor your divine image in each and every living being. Amen.
