Another Lesson Learned

I just found out that a man from our church died last night. He had cancer- I had no idea. This man was always so friendly and kind. Went out of his way to make people feel welcome at church. This is a very good example that we are all struggling with something and we can let it make us bitter or we can choose to keep our focus on Jesus and continue to love our fellow man just like Jesus- not only told us to do but lived it out in His own life. This man will be missed and I am a better person for knowing him and for learning this lesson.

28 Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, "Which is the first commandment of all?" 29 Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."  
Mark 12:28-31
