The love commandments

Mark 12:28-31

Coming up to Jesus, a religious expert asked,
“What’s the most important commandment?”

Jesus said, “The first thing to hear and heed is this:

The Lord, our God
alone is God!

And you shall love the Lord your God

in body, mind, and spirit:

with all of your heart,
with all of your soul,
with all of your mind,
and with all of your strength and being.

The second thing to hear and heed is this:

Your shall love other people just as much
as you must love yourself.

No other commandments mean more than these.

How to Get a Life!

A Bible scholar and expert in God’s Law asked Jesus,

“Rabbi, what do I have to do to have life forever?"

Jesus responded with questions of His own:

“What’s written in the Law?
How do you read it?”

Quoting scripture, the man said:

“You shall love the LORD your God
with all your heart
and all your soul
and all your strength
and all your mind.
And you shall love your neighbor
as much as you love yourself."

Jesus said,

“That’s right!
Now, do it,
and you will have life.”

Luke 10:25-28
