WITHOUT LOVE

UNDAILY Episode 76


“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.


JOHN 15, 9-17 (NIV)

 

What are today's values, shifting and blurring like pieces in a kaleidoscope? Is it worth spending life sitting at night on a golden throne of solitude, with eyes blue from the television? Often, applause and luxury come at a high cost of stress and even internal exile. Is there an antidote to this? When the clamor of uncertainty surrounds us, and we feel it's time to resist, it's worthwhile to return to words that never lose their relevance. "Imitate the love of Jesus" - this is not just a slogan; it's a signpost on how to live.

 

In an era dominated by the decalogue of the efficiency hunter, and interpersonal relations reduced to a mere touch, the words of Jesus from today's Gospel sound particularly defiant. How then to imitate love, which selflessly sacrifices life for friends in a world that teaches us to prioritize our needs above all?
