Some religious scholars were trying to figure out which of their zillions of rules were most important. So they asked Jesus:
Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” All of the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:36-38)
It’s not about rules and regulations. It’s about relationships. God wants us to (1) love Him with all we’ve got and (2) love others. That’s the very ♥ of Christianity.
We’ll talk about each of those in more detail in the next few days. Until then:
