Last night, my wife and I during our marriage class at church were given this verse to help us write our family’s purpose statement. I wanted to share with you this verse because it should be a part of everyone’s live; not just those who are married.
Luke 10:27 (NLT)
“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.” And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
As always on Scripture Thursday, let’s look at what other translations have to say.
(ASV) “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.”
(The Message) “That you love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and muscle and intelligence—and that you love your neighbor as well as you do yourself.”
(KJV) “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”
So what does this mean to you?
I think that no matter what, we should love God with every fiber of our being. With that, we should love other people as our self. God loves us no unconditionally, and if we show that love to others, maybe it will rub off. Showing that love to others, lets others see God in us.
Until next time readers, God Bless!
