The first of all the commandments…

June 3, 2021 7:56 am

“One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, ‘Which is the first of all the commandments?’ Jesus replied, ‘The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord, our God, is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’” (MK 12: 28-30)

When we listen to experts of self-development, modern “guru” of being perfect and we listen to their areas of perfection: mind-set, heart-set, soul-set and health-set and we are impressed by their complexity and holistic view, we need to remember that their areas came from the first of all the commandments: “with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” The way of perfection and self-development is the way of love God.

“Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
