The laws of God clearly say:
Do not be unfaithful to your spouse.
Do not take the life out of anyone.
Steal absolutely nothing.
And never agonize over having
what someone else has!
and all of God’s law can be
summed up in one word:
Care about other people
and their well-being
as much as you care
about your own.
never wrongs anyone
nor wishes them ill.
So if you keep at heart
your own interests
and also your concerns
for other people, then
your love will completely
satisfy God’s law.

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.
