Great Question

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” Mark 12:28

It is a great question to ask. If there is one thing God wants me to do more than anything else – what might it be. Jesus did not tell any stories for this question. His answer was quite simple. God wants us to love. He wants us to love him fully and the people around us freely. Before breathing a sigh of relief that he did not say we are to give up televisions or donate our homes to the poor, realize that love led Jesus to the cross.

Jesus, here is my next question, “Will you teach me how to love? I am not very good at it.”
