    “To hear and obey is the complete command.” This is an important lesson. I have the Shema in a Mezuzah on the doorway to my home to remind me to love God with all my heart, my soul, and my strength. I need to also remember that the way we obey this command is to love others as He has loved us.

    My life is mostly ordered by obedience to God’s Word. I have my occasional mess ups, but the biggest area of my life that is not marked by a response of obedience is loving others that are very different from me. In today’s context, this is not so much based on race or socio-economics as it is on ideology, worldview and core values. This is especially true of my Christian brothers and sisters. I just can’t believe that the Holy Spirit would tell each of us something totally different, but that gives me no excuse not to love them. Lord help me to both hear and obey!
