Jesus says that if we truly love God and our neighbor, we will naturally keep the commandments. This is looking at God’s law positively. Rather than worrying about all we shouldn’t do, we should concentrate on all we can do to show our love for God and others. It prompts us as believers to measure our love for others by what we wish for ourselves.

2. How can I get to know the person or persons I showed interest in this week better?
Challenge: Commit this week to showing interest in one person that you wouldn’t normally associate with. How did they react to your sudden interest?
