Loving God and Loving Others

"One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "of all the commandments, which is the most important?" The most important one," answered Jesus, "Is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." ~Mark 12:28-31

When we look at God's Word, there's two simple things He tells us to follow and they are the most important: love God and love others.

When we love love God with our ALL of our heart, soul, mind and strength; we will love others. When we love God in this way, we will begin to have a heart like His because we will spend time with Him reading His Word, praying and listening to Him. We will be transformed and love others as He did.

The love of Christ should rule our thoughts, decisions and actions.

There are a lot of hurting people in this world. How are you choosing to be intentional about first, loving God and then loving others.

Love is a choice and it involves both choice and an action.

We  must do more that say we would love to help this person and that person. We must put action with our love, it is love in action.

Who is God bringing your mind to at this moment? Who do you need to love on today? Who needs to hear your voice telling them they are worth it?

Don't deny the voice of the Father!
