WE ARE CALLED TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, "Which is the first of all the commandments?" Jesus replied, "The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these."
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,
they gathered together, and one of them, a scholar of the law tested him by asking,”Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said,
“what must I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
The D3 Foundation and our Onward – A Legacy of Love initiative exist to put God’s word into action, letting God’s light shine to inspire hearts and minds to choose life – life for the pre-born, life for mothers in need, life for the hungry, life for the elderly, life for the poor, life for the disabled, life for the prisoner, life for LGBTQ+ individuals, life for the addict and life for all of us sinners – in order to create communities built on love and radical inclusion, especially of the most vulnerable and marginalized. So how will we do this?
