The Lübeck Cathedral: The Cathedral was started in 1173, and completed in 1230…. Some 783 years ago, in Lubeck, Germany. This poem, below, is inscribed on a wall of the Cathedral.
You call Me Master, and obey Me not;
You call Me Light, and see Me not;
You call Me Way, and walk me not;
You call Me Life, and choose me not;
You call Me Wise, and follow Me not;
You call Me Fair, and love Me not;
You call Me Rich, and ask Me not;
You call Me Eternal, and seek Me not;
You call Me Noble, and serve Me not;
You call Me Gracious, and trust Me not;
You call Me Might, and honor Me not;
You call Me Just, and fear Me not;
. . . If I Condemn you, blame Me not.
If the above does not ‘hit home,’ then, consider… Matthew 22:36-40 – “Teacher,” he asked, “which is the most important commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your mind.’ (Deuteronomy 6:5) This is the first and most important commandment. And the second is like it. ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ (Leviticus 19:18) Everything that is written in the Law and the Prophets is based on these two commandments.”
