Thy Neighbor

One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

Jesus replied, " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'

This is the first and greatest commandment. 

And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Matthew 22: 35-40

Have you noticed the teachers of the law only asked Him for the greatest commandment, yet He gave them two?

I bet Jesus knew one couldn't be done without the other.

I hope you are having a nice weekend!
Much Love, 
Gabby
