Mark 12:28,30

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

Another wonderful challenge.  If you are following on You Version, the devotion from Good Morning Girls talks about being able to tell where our heart lays but how our time and treasure are spent.  This is not a new revelation...I've heard this before...but it is always a good check...and with this as the most important commandment...

Another thought pops into my head too...the word commandment and command.  We use it a little as parents, animal trainers...but I think it's strongest and most familiar use (not including Church) is in context of the military.  If you were a member of the military -- to disobey a command has serious consequences.  And yet...how do we treat the commands of God.  Wow....this thought I'm going to have to chew on for a while.  God wants us to have a "familiar" relationship with him...but not so familiar at to disregard what He is teaching us....

Lord...help me respect and follow your commands and your example of love.
