Law over love.

Do you issue your commandments to control and dominate?

No, you are not made of that.

You are love.

Why do we live in a world, where others try to control and dominate?

When that is not your essence?

Where is the help of fellow man?

Where is the love of another?

Do you think that everyone is out to get you?

That we need to retaliate and create dictums for another?

The world is full of control and domination.

Every day, husbands and wives,

mothers and sons,

government and civil life,

peoples against people,

ecosystems and humans.

From the smallest to the largest.

Civil laws create and enforce

control and domination over another.

But, your law says,

“As the father has so loved me, I love you.”

But, yet we can’t.

We look to everyone else but you for the answers.

We think we need to issue orders,

seek to control others,

dominate over their very beings

because we have been told.

Do we not know where to look for the answers

staring so simply ahead?

Like mothers and sons,

nations against nations,

humans against ecosystems.

Where is the help of fellow man?

Where is the love of another?

Why is it so hard to just love one another without rules

expectations

or control?

Why can’t your law rule?

Do you think that everyone is out to get you?

You think that the world is out to get you.

So, all you can do is protect what you have?

And, all we have been called to do is,

love one another

as you have loved us

in our brokenness

in our despair.

You have the only answer.

Just love.
