Matthew 22:35-40

There were over 600 laws the Pharisees of the day could identify. They often spent their time debating and discussing which laws were the most important. One of the Pharisees decided to ask Jesus which law was the greatest. Jesus immediately quoted Deuteronomy 6:5: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.” And then, Jesus added to his response, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

The rest of the week, we will explore why love is so important in the Christian’s life, as well as how to live in a more loving way.
