“The most important one [speaking of commandments],” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Lord, You share... there is no commandment greater than these. Help us to live this. As You point to places in our lives needing correction and to be turned from, let us sense Your love for us. In turn, I pray our hearts well up with gratitude and an increasing love for You. As You heal places in our minds and hearts, I pray our heartfelt devotion for You grows that much richer. Lord, this inevitably turns our hearts towards others. Help us see those around us as people You love, and also want to extend that love to them. Help us see through the glasses of Your true, genuine and authentic love. Thank You Jesus Christ, amen.
