Love Rules

It’s LOVE WEEK here on Get Up With God.  Today, we’ll look at what Jesus himself said about love.

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?”

Jesus replied:

“‘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.  It’s about relationships.  God wants us to (1) love Him with all we’ve got and (2) love others.  That’s it.

We’ll talk about each of those in more detail in the next few days.  Until then:

LOVE GOD.  LOVE OTHERS.  PASS IT ON.
