Matthew 22:36-40 

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Wow. So I’m supposed to love God AND love people. Lord, I confess that sometimes I just want to love you only because people can be difficult to love. But you, God, are easy to love. You are an awesome and holy God who purchased my forgiveness and relate to me in mercy, love, and grace. People don’t really treat me the same way You do. If they did, it would be easier to love them. But I guess it’s not about me being loved—it’s about me loving others, isn’t it? Oh. Well, that’s different. Sounds like the most comprehensive way to love You, is to love people. The way You love people. Help me owe love only!

Owe Love Only

Loving God! It seems easier to come up with ways to love people than to come up with ways to love God. Maybe that's why the "love others" is the same (like unto it) as loving God.

The thing that stand out to me is "ALL". Help me follow you Lord with ALL my heart, soul, mind and strength.
