I have been so busy and distracted lately that I forgot to rant about Maundy Thursday! No worries, better late than never.
SO… Today is Good Friday, right? So that means that yesterday was Maundy Thursday. The word “maundy” comes from the Latin and means to mandate. On Maundy Thursday, Jesus gave us a new commandment. WAIT.. THIS IS BIG. I’ll tell you why… Jesus gave us ONE commandment in his entire short time on this planet.
A new commandment I give to you. Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
One commandment. One. Think maybe we should have paid attention?
This one supersedes all the others because it came directly from The Man, himself.
How is it that THIS is NOT what I see in Christianity?
Stops me dead in my tracks. Where’s the love, ya’ll?
I love you people. Carry on.
