One day a Pharisee asked Jesus a question in order to test Him:
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
[Jesus] said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment.
“The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
(Matthew 22:35-40, NASB)
Lord, as I grow to love You more,
as I rejoice in Your personal presence we me,
help me recognize in those around me
Your likeness, and
Your love, so passionately poured out.
let me always treat them
as those most precious to You.
I love You;
let me love them the same.
