    This reminds us that what we do and the laws that we follow are God’s laws…directly tied into allowing the Holy Spirit to govern and shape our life. Jesus reminds us of His way to fulfill the law — which requires courage and an open mind, but more importantly an open heart that is totally committed to God’s Love and the Goodness of God.

    I find it difficult to hear Jeff as the background hum and music gets louder around 2 minutes in. Please turn it way down or take it out all together. Thank you. I really appreciate the reflection.
