Tuesday after Epiphany

It isn’t the quality of our prayer that counts it seems—it isn’t even the quality of our ministry. What seems to count with God is how well we love—nothing more. So says John.
And just in case that scares you, makes you want to husband the meagre reserves of love you feel you have, Mark has a word or two of instruction.
Take stock of what you have, find it isn’t nearly enough and then give it away, all of it, completely, every scrap, to Jesus. And the little you no longer have will come back to you in abundance, more than enough for every need, enough to stuff you full and leave you bloated, enough to waste. Enough!
Love is like that.
