Foundation of Love
“‘Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?’ Jesus replied, ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets ARE BASED on THESE TWO commandments” (Matt. 22:36-40).
Right here, hundreds of years of God’s word, spoken through the prophets, is summed up in this short paragraph. It’s God’s desire that the very foundation of our hearts and the motivation for our lives are based on these two things. —mos 12:42 p.m.
