Our text tells the story of how one of the teachers of the law came to Jesus,
and asked what the most important commandment was. Jesus looked at
him and replied:
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength."
The teacher of the law then said, "Well said, teacher! You are right
in saying that God is One, and there is no other God but Him. You
must love Him with all your heart, with all your understanding, and with
all your strength." When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely,
Jesus said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God."
When we begin to worship and praise God, we have to acknowledge that our
God is a Great, Big, Awesome God! Looking at the above commandment,
we find that there are four ways in which we need to love our God:
Let's be an example to everyone and check every day that we are loving God
in these four ways. We can test this by examining our prayers, how
we worship and praise God, our thoughts, our words, our actions and by
the way that we treat other people.
Make a start today and know that God will guide and strengthen you as you
seek to love, and serve, and honour Him in all that you do and say.
