Love: According to Jesus – the command

Answering a question raised by a lawyer recorded in Matthew 22:

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.
“And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

    Something I need to be constantly reminded of. Love God. Love others.

    It’s definitely something we all need to constantly be reminded of. Maybe we should all have it tattooed on our retinas (could they do that?!?!) so that we see everything through that filter. The best way to look at what we are doing is to ask: am I doing this because I love God/others?
