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). [Deu_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.
Regardless! No amount of cleverness or good intentions can avail us in Your sight. It is to You that ALL things must revert to, including our own selves.
Our destiny is in Your bosom. You long for our return. You are aware of all our shenanigans. Still, You long for us to come to our senses. Better than that?
- You are the cause for any of us to come to our senses or quit our shenanigans and return to You.
His love in my heart for all, thiaBasilia.
