Mark 12:29-33

Mark 12:29-33

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is

one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

Loving God requires everything that makes you, well, you. Not just your heart. Not just your soul. Not just your mind. Not just your strength (capabilities or status). But with everything that makes you; all of them put together. You must love God enough to give your whole life to Him. In other words, your love for Him must surpass your attention to yourself. Think about this for a moment.
