WOYWW: Love


Here is my desk today. I am in the town of Coron, Busuanga, Philippines, a boat ride away from some of the most beautiful places on earth. 


A couple of days ago, we went to a deserted island. There was no one there except for the Tagbanua caretakers. 


We had a great time playing in the water, snorkeling, kayaking, lazing around and of course, eating!


“Love is the fulfillment of the law.” Romans 13:10



Saint Paul puts it very simply and succinctly: He who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. He explains that all the commandments about not killing, not stealing, not committing adultery and coveting, these are all summed up in a simple rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 



So when we go about our day, whether at home, the office, an outing with friends, or an important meeting, we should ask ourselves, “How do I love this neighbor of mine? How can I show kindness, how can I help in any way?” There are people who are naturally like that, and we should observe them and emulate them. I find many brothers and sisters in my family and community like that. I, sad to say, fall short all the time! But as long as we improve, and get better at it, I think we will please the Lord. The thing about me is I never give up on myself. I know I am a work in progress, and I know that God won’t give up on me, until He finishes the work He has started in me!
