Discerning our context
He answered, “‘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, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Luke 10:27
Understanding who God is and all he has done is foundational to loving him with our whole being. Loving our neighbors is often dependant on God’s love indwelling us. When we truly love our neighbors, like Christ, we will understand who they are, see their needs and begin to earn the right to share God’s love with them.
