Don’t Let Go — Sarah R

 June 9, 2024

In Matthew, a man comes to Jesus and asks “Which commandment in the law is the greatest?” In Luke, a different man asks Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” In both cases, Jesus draws on scripture that his questioners already know to answer them: love God, and love your neighbour. Like these questioners, we may already be familiar with these first and greatest commandments. But how long has it been since we’ve read the words and reflected on them? When God commands us to love, what do we think we’re supposed to actually do?

Scripture readings:
Deuteronomy 6:4-9
