This Sunday's Gospel Reading continues the Sermon on the Mount. Last week we were challenged by Jesus' call to a holiness that penetrates out lives. It is fitting as we move quickly to the beginning of Lent that we be challenged to Sanctification and not settle for a life of nominal Christianity. This week Jesus challenges the borders of our love. To love is to be as concerned for another's well being and happiness as we are for our own. Consider that for a moment. Genuinely loving another is a hard thing to do. In this Sunday's Gospel Jesus lets us know who He expects his disciples to love. Its a long list. Its a God sized list for a converted people.
