The greatest commandment



In Matthew 22:34-39, ‘hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

These couple of sentences made me wonder if throughout the world we are putting this into practice. Are we loving God? Are we loving our neighbour?

Many people in society are in need to rediscover to love God, to rediscover to love one’s neighbour. Not loving God, not loving one’s neighbour, will lead into a destructive society, where the power of darkness reigns.

We are to be people who love God, who love our neighbour, to bring the light of true love back into society. This is the greatest commandment society is to follow… to love God and to love one’s neighbour.

In Unity and God Bless you,

Hi! I am George Calleja, a Christian Author, from Malta; I am married and have two children. In 2009 I obtained my MBA through the University of Leicester. During the years 1990 to 1996 I was a full time missionary with ‘The International Catholic Programme for Evangelization - ICPE’ and have evangelised in various countries, such as Russia, Ghana, Poland, Germany, and Malta amongst others. Since 1997, I am an active member of the Focolare Movement in Malta. In November 2014 I published my first Christian Book ‘Peace and Unity in our lives – Volume One’, and have already published another 15 Books. While I hope that you find spiritual growth through reading my articles, I promise to keep you always in my prayers.
