I am so grateful that someone had the willingness to ask Jesus “which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” I’m even more grateful that Jesus was willing to answer it in our scriptures today.
Our scripture in Matthew describes the greatest commandment- love God and love others. It sounds so simple, but isn’t it hard to love the person who hurts you, the person that hurts your family? Is it hard to love yourself sometimes? Our scripture in 1 John describes why we should live it out because Jesus gave up his life for us. The book of James describes how we can live it out through faith and endurance.
