The Heart of the Matter

April 30- May 28

"Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number..." Acts 2:46-47

The life and death of Jesus had one strong message that was both overt and inherent: love one another. The heart of the matter was love. Time and again we hear Jesus offer the disciples a post-resurrection message of empowerment to give to the world what he had given to them. Jesus embodied a generous love, one that compels us to share. Ziggy Marley sings, “Love is my religion... with you I share the gift, the gift we now know.” This Easter Season we will encourage one another to truly live out the heart of the matter with glad and generous hearts.
