“Love God And Love Others”

On one occasion, a man asked Jesus, “Teacher, what is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?”
Jesus replied to the man, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.”
Then, Jesus added, “A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. The entire law and the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Jesus has summed up all ten commandments with these statements. Jesus covered the first four commandment when He said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.” Then, He covered the next six by saying, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
So, do you Love God with all your heart, soul and mind and, do you love your neighbor as yourself?” If you obey those two statements, you will obey the ten commandments.
Or, as a church I am familiar put it; “Love God and love others.”
Do you Love God more than anything? Do you love others as yourself?
William Booth was the founder of the Salvation Army. On one occasion, Booth was asked what his secret was? Booth replied, “I don’t know that there is a secret.. but I know this; from the time I got the poor of London on my heart, God has had all of me.”
Does God have all of you?
Today… this week… this year… Love God and Love others.
