“One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:35-40 NLT
What are the two most important things that I can do in my relationship with God? Jesus said I am to love God and to love others. My love for Him is to be a love expressed with everything that is within me. My love for others is to be expressed even as I love myself.
Think of ways that you can express your love today. First to God and then to those that God puts in your path.
It’s a challenge worth accepting, because it’s still the most important thing.
