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
