The Answer

“The Answer” is a poem by Maxine Le Pelley which is definitely worth reading.

“In the words of the young man whom Jesus met,  he too asked: ‘Lord, what lack I yet?’ What do I need to heal this case and error’s picture to erase?  Do I need more humility, More meekness, and less vanity?  Lack I still yet a motive pure, A little faith that will endure?  Is it more gratitude I need, More honesty of thought and deed?  What is my need, all else above?  The answer came, ‘To love, to love!'”

When my heart is filled with Love, the answer is always obvious, but when it is dark, I can neither see nor  feel love.  Habakkuk 3: 17-19 states “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.  The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.”  We are receptive to all Good when we continue to love more and our Good multiplies!  The answer then is always simple.  Just love more.
