The Primary Commandment

Matthew Bible Background

New Testament: Mark 12.30

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 12.28–44 on March 9, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

A man asked Jesus what was the first commandment of all. Jesus answered:

“‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

– Mark 12.30

Nothing supersedes that commandment, regardless of how important we think something else might be. Let love for God drive everything else you do in life. Try it and see how it affects your life.

Questions:

  • What is the difference between the mind and the heart?
  • What is the difference between the heart and the soul?
