Questions
QUESTIONS: What does it mean to love YHWH? Including with all of your heart, person, and abundance? What is the connection between YHWH being our triune, one God and loving him? How do we love YHWH with all of our abundance/strength/possessions? Jesus told the rich young ruler to give all he had to the poor. We see monks who did this over history, including St. Francis of Assisi, or John Wesley(?). Does it mean having a very loose grip on what we own so we can simultaneously plan, save, and enjoy what we have but give it up if the Lord asked as well as live generously to bless others?
