Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s I enjoyed the music of many of the pop groups of the day, but one group that I really enjoyed listening to was the “The Momas and Popas.” And one of their songs came to mind as I thought of what to share this week, the second installment of my blog “A Matter of Perspective – Making Sense of Our World Through An Out-of-this-World Perspective.” It is my intent to use this venue for sharing what I hope will be words of encouragement, challenge, and insight.
My thoughts are unashamedly shaped by a Biblical Worldview, and the tone of my words will be governed by a sincere love for the people I hope to address. You may thinking, “How could you love me? You don’t even know me!” Many readers may very well be strangers, bu the basic tenet of the Christian life is love. A man asked Jesus one day to tell him what commandment was the most important. Jesus’ response was . . . “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hand all the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 22:37-40, NKJV).
In other words, everything in the Bible, and thus in the Christian life, find their meaning in these two commandments, and in the simple word . . . LOVE! Therefore, I may not know you personally, but there is still love in my heart for you. I hope this truth will shine through the messages I convey.
Join me each week as I post a thought or two about God’s Word, a book that is more than 2,000 years old in parts, and how it still applies so much to our lives today!
