The Two great Commandments.

In Matthew 22:34-40, Jesus and the disciples were in the temple. Jesus was being examined or questioned by the religious leaders. So far, no one could say anything against Him. Then a pharisee ,who was a lawyer, came and asked a question. What is the great commandment in the law? Jesus told him, to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind. Then Jesus added, the second commandment is like the first. You are to love your neighbor as yourself. These two commandments are all of the law. The lawyer just walked away. Once the truth has been spoken there is no need to argue the point. Many people will hear the truth and argue the point because they don’t like it. But it doesn’t change the truth. The gospel is the truth. And whether it’s a pharisee in Jesus’s time or someone in our lives, the gospel is the truth.
