Love . . . and Meaning It
The following passage from the Gospel of Luke is well known enough. It gets quoted quite often . . .
And he answered, “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF (Luke 10:27).
I wonder if any of us really understand the ramifications of this commandment of Scripture, and I mean in their entirety? What would be the results if we really obeyed it?
