Love is the law of the heart, the first guiding rule for our lives, for us who call ourselves Christians. Love challenges us and stretches us beyond our ordinary selves and our initial response.  Love and kindness need to be our inner compass, leading us to step out with confidence in our daily interactions with one another. We could begin to form our ‘love’ habit if needed by recalling that saying: ‘Nice matters.’  Being ‘nice’ is a great quality and it can advance to be ‘love’ if our motivation supports that. And love is the real test of our growing relationship with Jesus and his expectations of us. Just being conscious of the quality of our relationships is a good beginning!
