When one of the scribes asked Jesus what was the most important commandment, He answered with the first and the second most important.  “Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’  The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31)  Just like yesterday’s reading of 1 Corinthians chapter 13, if we have love as our motive our actions will be evidence of that love.

Today’s reading: Mark 11-12
