And he replied: You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.

LUKE 10:27

To summarize our Christian walk there are two major priorities that we need to obey and do and will have the wonderful blessed life that God has promised us.

Firstly, love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul (your life) and with all your strength and with all your mind.

  • Nothing should ever take His place in your life – put Him first.
  • Worship Him only – get rid of any foreign gods.

Secondly, love your neighbor as yourself. Your neighbor can be anybody.

With the measure that you care and protect your own life, care for others – do not break down, destroy or abuse and misuse your neighbor.

Love yourself. The Father wants you to love yourself.

See the beauty of your own life: respect, honor and appreciate what God has put inside you.

Be determined to keep this treasure in mind. If you do, you will walk in everlasting favor with God.
