May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us!

‘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 the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.’ Matthew 22:37-40NIV
Read the Ten Commandments as found in Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6 -21. You will notice that these two greatest commandments are not listed in the original 10. It is tempting to wonder why would Jesus add 2 more. Verse 40 is our answer. If we obey the two greatest commandments, we obey all ten. Obedience is an act of love. If we love the Lord we will obey him in all things. Do remember that our neighbor is not limited to the person next door. Our neighbor is anyone God puts in our space. The love Jesus is talking about is a true and unconditional love. Let us show our love for our Father by obeying all His commandments with joy.
Have a Blessed Day! Follow Him! One Less Day to Go!
