The word of life this month is taken from the Gospel of Luke. It is part of that rich collection of sayings that corresponds to the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. In this section, as we know, Jesus describes the requirements for being part of the Kingdom of God and the characteristics of those who belong to it. These sayings inspire us and lead us to imitate our heavenly Father.
In this verse Jesus calls on his disciples to imitate God the Father in loving. If we want to be his children, we should love our neighbor in the same way that he loves.
