And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 22:35-40 ESV) I need you to keep it simple for me. When it gets too complicated, I get confused. Fortunately, in scripture there are several places that God distills simple truth. Last week, we began to open up what it is that God desires us to do in the crazy days that we live in. Micah 6 told us that we must Drop Religion and Seek Justice. If you missed it I'd encourage you to listen to this sermon at our website. This week we will look at his further instruction to Love Mercy and Walk Humbly. In many ways, this is connected to what Jesus tells us is the two greatest commandments in all of scripture - Loving God & Loving our Neighbor. The real question is, who is our neighbor and how do we carry that out? Is that just being a good guy to the people around us or is there more?
