COSTING NO LESS THAN EVERYTHING
Sometimes love costs no less than everything.
Parents know this in bringing up children in love; and then it costs a lot to let them go, as they make their way through life, finding their own feet, forming their own families.
And the love of God opens the door to people who are poor; if we fail to recognise the poor in our world we are missing God.
And we know that a passion for wealth can close us off from other people as we fail to see their needs and get into competition with them.
The call of the Lord is to give of ourselves for others, even when it hurts; and into a love which shares with those who are poor.
His love calls us, and when we live in this love of giving and receiving, we are the most blessed of people.
