I love Jesus’ reply in Matthew 22:37-40 when asked what the greatest command is, 37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” It is easy to get caught up in a bunch of rules to make us feel like we are keeping God’s commands. But if we boil it all down, Jesus’ words keep it pretty simple and effective.
