Happy Sunday and Happy New Year! It is that time of year when we make resolutions, make a fresh start, try to do life better than we have. I am convinced that if we would focus on these two commandments and spend our time loving and serving God better and loving and serving our neighbors better, all of our other resolutions would fall into place. Jesus made it pretty clear--these two directives are at the heart of everything else. And I know I fail miserably at living out these commandments well. I get caught up in my own little world, my problems and issues. I forget that my energies and focus are best spent on loving God and others. This year I am resolving to better love Jesus and others. I am resolving to direct my attention to these 2 commandments--I am excited to see what unfolds.
