Thought for the day

“The great commandment is not ‘thou shalt be right.’ The great commandment is to ‘be in love.’  Be inside the great compassion, the great stream, the great river.  As others have rightly said, all that is needed is surrender and grattitude.” ~ Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs

    so help me, I love Fr. Rohr and this book. I just recommended it to two people within one day and started reading it again myself.

    why is it so much harder to be in love, and so much easier to try to be right? how have Christ-followers gotten so sidetracked?
