A Thought for Today February 4, 2019

“Love God, Love People”
 
This thought is the summation of the following scripture
I invite you to read the following verses
 
Matthew 22:36-40
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
 
Who is the easier to love, God or people?
 
Well, the Lord God of course.
He is perfect.
 
However, our love for Him is not perfect.
As a matter of fact, it can be easy to go through a day, several days without thinking of Him at all.
 
One reason; for the most part we don’t physically see the Lord God.
 
Now people, we probably each know people that drive us bananas.
And if the truth is known, there are people that we probably drive bananas.
 
The Ten Commandments, all of the law was given to Israel. As you look at the law it is a great way for all people to live.
 
So starting today, ask the Holy Spirit to help you love the Lord God and the people whom you are in contact with.
 
When we become believers, with the Holy Spirit’s help, this is the way we will live.
