Our Charge

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Our Charge”

Matthew 22:37-40 Living Bible (TLB)

37 Jesus replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.’ 38-39 This is the first and greatest commandment. The second most important is similar: ‘Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.’ 40 All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets stem from these two laws and are fulfilled if you obey them. Keep only these and you will find that you are obeying all the others.”

——–

Further Thought:  Most know or have heard of the 10 Commandments.  In today’s passage, Jesus said the 10 have now been reduced to 2.  Under the new covenant, Jesus has made it simpler for us.  These two commandments of love contain the power to fix all the issues we are attempting to solve around the globe, in our nation, our communities, and our homes.  For our candidates running for local, state, and federal offices, the message of love should be the focus of their campaigns.  We should ask ourselves whether the policies and actions of our candidates demonstrate their love for God and their fellow man. As we close, let’s continue to support our local church to ensure this message of love is available to those still in the dark who may not have heard there is a better way.  When we operate in these two commands of love, everything else will fall into place. 

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
