Scripture: Psalm 126; Mark 12:28-34
When Jesus is asked what the greatest commandment is, he links two essential commands from the Old Testament – love God with your whole heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. These commandments, he says, are really one commandment – and they form the heart of the Christian life. As we enter into a new school year – and adjust to the changes that have come and are coming over the last few months, we are called to take those commandments as our guideposts for life. Love God, love your neighbor, live like Jesus, and trust that, no matter what, God’s love is holding us close, caring for us no matter what we face.
