Simple Love

Simple Love (Photo credit: smiling_da_vinci)

Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, “Where I am going, you cannot come.’ I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.

Jesus calls his disciples little children.
What does the designation child mean in his culture?
What do you know of “little children”?
of little children and love?

Whom do they love?
Whom do you/are you to love?
What do you know of the “little child” in yourself?
What does she or he love?

– Terry Dowdy
