Thursday of Trinity 14 – Matthew 5:38-48

ShareMatthew 5:38-48 I told you some time ago that love is the strongest thing known to man.  This only makes sense when you remember that we were wrought in love and formed from the substance of God’s love.  How could we not be made for love? However, I find that there are a lot of […]
