The greatest commandment.


We’ve all heard it a thousand times.  30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ 31 The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  No other commandment is greater than these.”  Mark 12.30-31

 What does verse 31 look like?

We usually think of our neighbors as those who live next door to us.  But, Jesus explains in the story of The Good Samaritan that our neighbor means all persons, enemies included. 

I love a Three Musketeers bar.  Does this mean I split half of it with my neighbor?

Is it extending forgiveness?  Is it the golden rule?

I’m curious.  What does loving your neighbor as yourself mean to you?
