In the book of Exodus, we read that God gave His people special commands to follow. These commands are often called the Ten Commandments. Maybe you have read these commands and wondered which command is most important.
In our Bible Reading today, a teacher asked Jesus which command was most important. In verse 30 Jesus answered, ?You must love the Lord your God. You must love him with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.? The most important thing we can do is to love God. Everything we do should show that we love God.
Jesus also told the teacher the second most important command. ?You must love other people the same as you love yourself? (verse 31b). God wants us to love other people. We should treat people the same as we want to be treated.
I hope you will think about loving God and other people today.
