Today’s gospel reading includes the Great Commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” One way we can love God is by loving what we’re doing, at least as much as that’s possible.
At a natural level, what we’re doing may not be the most satisfying or fulfilling. But we can love God through it. At least, that’s what the apostle Paul suggests when he addresses slaves in his letter to the Colossians: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for people, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.”
I mention this today because I don’t always think of taking out the trash or brushing my teeth or even a lot of the stuff that I do at church as a way to love God (which is embarrassing). Have a great day loving him.
