Have you ever thought about pure love? The kind of love that accepts without question. It doesn’t agree with wrong doing, hurting others or selfishness. It is the kind of love that is completely other- focused.
Many people know of the love of parents that is selfless and sacrificing and yet there are many people who come from families where they have not experienced this love for one reason or the other.
I remember when I did youth work in my past it was always difficult to talk of the love of parents as there were always people who did not know this love and to talk about it caused pain and a sense of separation from others.
My parents loved my brothers and I and I truly believe that if their lives had been required to protect ours they would have willingly given their life for us. Despite this however they were not perfect.
God however loves us perfectly.
ACTION: As you pray today reflect on the concept of pure acceptance. It does not mean our actions are accepted but that we are accepted.
GOSPEL READING: Matthew 5:17-19
