Following upon the Beatitudes, Jesus teaches us that He has come to fulfill God’s Law. The Law is fulfilled and perfected in divine Love. Love is most beautifully experienced in forgiveness.
Christians are called to follow Jesus in everything. Do my words and deeds fulfill the Law in love? How recognizable is my commitment to forgiveness?
O Jesus, help me to keep God’s commandments by loving others as I am loved by You. May my actions today mirror the gift of God’s forgiving Love in my life.
