The words of the wise are like prodding goads, and firmly fixed [in the mind] like nails are the collected sayings which are given [as proceeding] from one Shepherd. But about going further [than the words given by one Shepherd], my son, be warned. Of making many books there is no end [so do not believe everything you read], and much study is a weariness of the flesh. All has been heard; the end of the matter is:
- Fear the Almighty [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].
- Keep His commandments
- For this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation
- The object of Almighty’s providence.
- The root of character
- The foundation of all happiness
- The adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun and the whole duty for every man
For the Almighty shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.
Came the Pharisee
Teacher, which kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? Some commandments are light–which are heavy? And He replied to him, You shall love the Master your Almighty with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deut. 6:5.] This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as you do yourself. [Lev. 19:18.] These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 22:36-40.
True, for the most we keep that second commandment without any reservations but! The First? Ah! We do but! We got to take care of our families first.
