Mark 12:28-31 ESV
“Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall 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: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
The essence of the commandments is love; love for God and love for others.
Lord, would you continue to remind my forgetful heart how great your love is that I might be compelled to love you and others.
