I will learn from you

The first psalm from the Liturgy of the Hours struck me for some reason this morning as I was praying.  As I reflected on it, I came to the conclusion that all I need to do in life is learn to love.  Everything the Lord asks of us is because He loves us.  Take a look at the commandments as found in the Old Testament.  If you break them down, as Jesus did for his disciples in the New Testament, they are all about love.  Because God is love, if we can learn to love, then we will have learned all we need to in order to be perfect.  Not an easy thing to do, but it is a very simple thing to do.  As it is mentioned in John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my commandments.”  Love is the command, let’s work on it together.
