Beecher: no love, no worship

Monday, January 7, 2013
    [A teacher replying to Jesus:] “To love [God] with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
    —Mark 12:33 (NIV)
    I never know how to worship until I know how to love.
    ... Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887), Royal Truths, Edinburgh: Alexander Strahan and Co., 1862, p. 19 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, drive the cold from my heart, that I may love and worship you.
