Inspirational Thought:

Mark 12:29-31 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this:
‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord
your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your
mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your
neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”


Lev. 25:23-24. “The land is mine and you are but aliens and my
tenants.  Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you
must provide for the redemption of the land.”
