Loving God



Scripture: Luke 12:28-34
March 13, 2015

Jesus replied, “The most important one is Israel listen! Our God is the one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself.  No other commandment is greater than these.” Luke 12:29-30

What does God require of us? To love God and to love neighbor.

This is the summation of all of God’s law and the teaching from God’s prophets. 
The gospel writer Luke expands our understanding of who our neighbor is beyond those who actually live next to us, to be anyone we encounter in our day. 

As you go through the day look for ways that you can love God by showing love, compassion, grace, mercy and forgiveness toward your neighbor.

Prayer:  God help me in all that I say and do today show you and my neighbor love.  Amen.
