A Collect for Love
'And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”' - Luke 10:25-28
Teacher, who is the culmination of the Law and who has shown us how the Law is lived, give us hearts that love you completely and hearts that are moved to love others with the fullness with which you love them, so that we might walk in your ways and find not only eternal life, but a life that is full and perfect and made complete, through you who with the Father and Holy Spirit have been the essence of love since before the world began. Amen.
