The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

TUESDAY, December 12

Matthew 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Our reading from Matthew tells the story of Jesus teaching about the greatest commandment. He tells the Pharisees that Moses delivered the greatest and first commandment to the Israelites: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind” (Deuteronomy 6:5). Jesus amplifies this by saying that there is a second great commandment just like it, from Leviticus 19:18: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
