Commands

Don’t veer off to the right or the left. Walk straight down the road God commands so that you’ll have a good life... ~ Deuteronomy 5:33 (MSG)

Jesus answered, “What is written in the Scriptures? How do you understand them?”

The man replied,
“The Scriptures say, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind.’ They also say, ‘Love your neighbors as much as you love yourself.’”
Jesus said, “You have given the right answer. If you do this, you will have eternal life.” ~ Luke 10:16-18 (CEV)

KEY IDEA:
Love God. Love neighbor. These are the two main God-commands.
PRAYER:
Lord God, I know what you expect of me. Yet I easily drift off course. Then I grumble because my life isn't going so well. Please pick me up and set me back on your path. I want to love you with everything I am. And I want to include the people around me in that love, too. But I can't do it without you. Amen.
