I Corinthians 13:13 “Faith, hope, and love, but the greatest of these is love.”
(John 3:16 “For God so loved the world…”)
What is important to you? What matters the most? Is it a person? Your family? Job? Money or fame? Dallas Cowboys? (Sorry, had to throw that one in.) Thankfully, Jesus gave the answer to that question a long time ago. What should matter most is love. Faith is necessary; hope is wonderful. But love is the greatest commandment. Love God, and love one another.
Matthew 22:34-35 “When the Pharisees heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence they gathered themselves together. And one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him. ‘Teacher which is the great commandment in the law?'”
His question gets to the heart of everything. He was asking Jesus to explain the point of human existence. Jesus’s answer was, “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 foremost commandment. The second is to love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend the whole law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
What really matters? Why are we here? God made us to love Him and to love others.
