Christ’s Two Great Commandments

For Evangelical Christians, Jesus made it clear what was expected of them in Matthew 22:36-40

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.

And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”

The Ten Commandments, written by the finger of God and given to Moses on Mt. Sinai taught us to how to love God and how to love one another:

“You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve,” “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain,” and “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.”

“Honor your father and your mother,” “You shall not kill,” “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,” and “You shall not covet your neighbor’s property.”

There can be no “free-market” profit from exploiting the poverty and suffering of others.

    Christ was concerned about the poor, and I am sure He still is. Loving your neighbor also means giving an helping hand to those who are in need. It is sad to say , but oft time those who have plenty turned their backs on those who have nothing. Yet many of them call themselves Christians.

    Thanks for sharing. God bless
