Mark 12:28-44

It is said that the fastest growing religion is Islam. Large crowds bow in the direction of Mecca as they pause for prayer five times each day.

Christians often fail to present a truly distinct way of life, an orderly and timely way to pray, and an authentic, public witness to Christ. What we believe and what we do is often much too private. How often we fail to manifest the Christian witness of the early church: “See how they love one another!”

An observant Jew prays this verse every morning and evening: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Deut. 6:4-5). May you and your loved ones embrace the spiritual disciplines suggested yesterday.
