Maundy Thursday!

John 15:12

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

These are our Marching Orders as Christians.  Like Frodo Baggins, it's not that we don't know what to do.  It's only that we're afraid to do it.  Today, ask God for the grace and strength to love as he does.
