“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
All that we do is rooted in one thing: who we love the most. That seems an incorrect statement until we dig deeper to discover the roots. Why do we snap at people? Because we love ourselves better than others. Why do we neglect God’s Word? Because we love ourselves better than God. If we stop to consider why we do or do not do certain things, we will find that it boils down to who we love.
