The scriptures are full of commands from God. Do this. Don’t do that. So many details! While there is a lot of wisdom to be found among those details, sometimes we can lose the point along the way. It is refreshing to hear Jesus cut through the clutter with some clear priorities. Love God with everything you are, and love your neighbor as yourself. Nothing to it, right?
1. What does it look like to love God?
2. Does loving others feel like work at times? Where do you struggle with loving others?
Challenge: Our neighbors may be everyone on earth, but that is overwhelming. List some people around you who you can directly show love to. Pray over this list, and ask for God to show you ways to love these people this week.
