Love that Gives Us a Direction to Face and a Way to Be

Jesus’ double command to us comes to us as a gift. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and with all your mind, and Love your neighbor as yourself.” This double command gives us a direction to focus – toward God who is OUR love, who loves us already. And it gives us a way to be – we are meant to be people who live as God’s image-bearers, as people who love their neighbors in a world that is hurting.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and will 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.”

Matthew 22.37-39
