Rom 13:8-10, Ps 112, Luke 14:25-33

The cost of love

To love is to give oneself for the good of the other. We can only give love if we have first experienced its reception. We can only be detached from our father, mother, wife, husband, brothers and sisters, and our own life too – if we have experienced the love of God. God’s love is the Trinity: three divine persons pouring themselves out in love for one another, and overflowing into creation. When we open our hearts to receive and welcome the love of any one person of the Trinity then we are drawn to participate in their way of loving. They empower us to count the cost and to be committed to a love that gives unto death, and on into eternal life.
