When asked by the Pharisees, “What is the greatest commandment”? Jesus answered and said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself”. Yet, you will not find those commandments directly stated within the ten commandments.
You see, of the Ten Commandments, the first four tell us how to love God and the second six, tell us how to love our neighbor. So, when asked, Jesus simply summed up the first four Commandments and the second six.
This is God’s message to us from the beginning of time and the truth that He sent His Son to share: “Love God. Love your neighbor”. They are one in the same!
