Scripture of the Day - July 9, 2012

Mark 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Folks, we have to get the love issue settled in our hearts. The first of the Ten Commandments is to LOVE God with ALL your heart, soul, mind and strength and the second is to LOVE your neighbour as yourself. Who is my neighbour you may ask? Jesus makes that very clear in the parable of the good Samaritan...anyone and everyone. We are to show love to everyone. If you love God you will love your neighbour. If you love God and your neighbour you will show it. Nothing is greater than showing love, and you show love by obeying God.
