Matthew 22:36-40 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
If you read my blog you may have noticed I often talk about this subject; LOVE! But I just can't get away from it. I guess it's because if those five verses were the only verses in the Bible... it would be enough! And, if Christians the world over would strive to live them out... it would be enough!
I am sure many of you remember the popularity of the WWJD deal… the What Would Jesus Do? saying. I thought that was okay, but I think a better thought is to ask what would love do… and if we did what love would do, we of course would do what Jesus would do, for He walked in perfect love!
We talk about going “deeper” or getting “spiritual meat”… well let's sink our teeth into LOVING PEOPLE and we'll go as deep as it is possible to go!
But many times we want everything other than that… because it’s hard, and takes a sacrifice on our part.
With every situation you face, ask yourself; What Would Love Do… and then do that!
