Loving God & Loving Your Neighbor
34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (Deuteronomy 6:5) 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Leviticus 19:18)
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:34-40
