The MOST Important Commandment

Matthew 22:34-40 (New Living Translation)
The MOST Important Commandment

34. But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again. 35. One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: 36. “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?”

37. Jesus replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, ALL your soul, and ALL your mind.’ (means surrender your entire self to Him, to the Divine.) 38. This is the first and greatest commandment. 39. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (in other words, treat others as you want to be treated.) 40. The ENTIRE LAW and ALL the demands of the prophets are based on THESE TWO commandments.”
