One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, “Which is the first of all the commandments?” Jesus replied, “The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mk_12:28-34
NUMBER 1 – LOVE GOD!
Then . . .
Love your neighbor – AS you love yourself.
The Chinese man, the African, the Indian, the European, the Muslim, the Elderly, the child, the poor, the rich, the powerful and the meek – we are to love them all – AS ourselves! That means there is no more room for killing the unarmed than there is for killing the helpless unborn! There is no more room for excusing injustice than there is for causing injustice by your own selfish political agendas. We are to look inside first, dear ones. And there, if we don’t find the love of God – our love for God, nothing else really matters, no matter who you think you are! Jesus came to save souls and it all begins inside! God loves you, even if you don’t yet realize it – Love Him back!
What do you believe, beloved?
