Just These Two Things

by Darla Noble

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’"

Matthew 22:37-39

Love God. Love others. In that order.

Yes, that’s really all there is to it. These few sentences pretty well sum up what your life is supposed to be about. If you do these two things everything else…and I mean everything else will fall into place. No, life won’t be perfect, but it will be blessed.

Now all you have to do is decide whether or not you are going to obey. I hope and pray you will.

Pray: Father, You know my heart. You know I want to follow and obey You in all things. You know I want to love others the way you love me, but it isn’t always easy. Please give me the courage and wisdom to live the way You want me to. In your Son’s name, I pray, Amen.
