Matthew 22

34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again.

35 One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question:

36 "Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?"

  37 Jesus replied,

"'You must love the LORD your God with all your heart,

all your soul,

and all your mind.'

38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

39 A second is equally important:

'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."

I've said it before in this blog – it bears saying again...

Jesus summed up the who shebang in 4 words...

Love God, love others.

That's it.

That's what it's all about.

All we have to do is love God, & love others.

As far as Jesus was concerned, that was all to it.

But we don't get that.

We've added a few things to that list of 2.

How is that working out, do ya think?

In the days ahead, perhaps it would bear remembering those 4 words that can be boiled down from the question Jesus was asked.

What's the greatest commandment?

Love God.

Oh, & btw, the commandment that's running an uber-close second?

Love others.

Love God. Love others.


maybe we should start another anacronym...


Love God, love others.
