And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Matk 12:30-31 This has been on my heart for some time and I have been prompted by brother Dave M"s prayer thread. (Thank you @Dave M ) How do we do this? How do we know we love the Lord with all our soul mind and strength? How do we love our neighbour as much as we love ourselves? Surely this is something we all fail in many times? I'm sure I put self first a lot of the time above my neighbour? How can the great commandments in theses verses be applied Spiritually and practically to our lives?
