    In giving these two commandments -- love God and love
    neighbor -- Jesus has summed up the heart of the Ten Commandments
    (Exodus 20), God's blueprint for morality.

    The first four commandments
    focus on honoring God. The remaining six focus upon treating our
    neighbors fairly.

    However, Jesus takes them a step deeper and makes
    them simpler to remember. More than honoring God and treating others
    honorably, we are called to love them.

    suddenly at issue and not just our behavior. God made us for
    relationship with him and with others. Our relationships are to all be
    marked by our love.

    Mark 12:31 ......The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[a]There is no commandment greater than these."

    1. Mark 12:31 Lev. 19:18
