The Parish Churches of

St Michael & St Wulfad, Stone, with

St Saviour Aston by Stone

 

In todays Gospel, Jesus summarises the whole law and the whole bible into one word – Love. If we have it, nothing more is needed. If we don’t, have it, everything is lost.  To love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength is to always remember him and to do his will every moment of our lives.

We show love of him through having conversations with him through prayers, singing praises,, reading scriptures and maintaining a joyful attitude at all times.

To love others as we love ourselves means to treat them as we treat ourselves, to take care of them as we take care of ourselves.

 

Understanding the real meaning of love brings us near the Kingdom of God but having love in our hearts brings us into the Kingdom of God.

 

“God is Love, and those who live in love live in God, and God lives in them”.
